Jacobs (10)Announcing a 2nd Restoring Forests Conference and Call for Abstracts

Daily agenda now available.

This 2nd Congress, scheduled for 13-16 October 2014 in Lafayette, Indiana, USA will continue to communicate advances in these themes that were addressed in the 1st Restoring Forests Congress in 2011 in Madrid, Spain.  Yet, we will also explore what constitutes restoration in the 21st Century by re-defining the scope of forest restoration and narrowing our vision of restoration success in relation to a realistic, achievable end result. This conference will also highlight the need to continually integrate genetics into forest restoration, especially in relation to re-defining species selection and seed zones in relation to global change.

A selection of the communications presented will be published in a special issue of the international journal, New Forests (published by Springer). Abstracts for oral presentations or posters should be submitted by 1 July 2014.
