Bringing Knowledge on Fir Species Together
Abies 2016: The 15th International Conference on Ecology and Silviculture of Fir|
21-24 September 2016, Sapporo, Japan
Do you know how many Abies tree species exist worldwide? Do you know scientists and experts working on Abies species or forest communities with Abies species as their component?
Do you have an insight into similarities and differences in ecology and silviculture of different Abies species?
The knowledge of ecology, silviculture, and management of fir species is extremely scattered among experts from different countries and continents. In scientific literature some fir species (e.g. Abies alba and Abies balsamea) have been often favoured over many other Abies species that have high economical and/or ecological importance, but are in many regions under the threat of extinction. We lack the overview on ecology and silviculture of different Abies species that would allowed us to share knowledge on different levels of biological organisation of fir species and fir forests - from gene, species, and population level to the community and ecosystem level. Therefore the main aim of the first overall fir conference is to bring knowledge on fir species together.
Among broad topic of the conference, the main focus is given to ecology, silviculture, and management of Abies species. The participation of experts and scientists from different continents and from various disciplines - ecology, silviculture, management, environmental sciences and many others - is desired.
