International Conference "Science and Practice in Forest Ecology"

KThe effects of climate change are already observed and involve not only ecologically and economically important species of trees, but also the related species of other plants, fungi, and animals. The conference “Science and Practice in Forest Ecology” will be a research-discussion forum during which the latest results of research in the field broadly understood as forest ecology, including changes in forest ecosystems at local, regional and global levels, will be discussed. The conference is addressed to researchers representing the fields of forest science, evolutionary biology, functional ecology, mycology, reproductive biology, invasion biology and conservation genetics, who will get the opportunity to present the results of their research and to discuss its applications in sustainable forest management and nature conservation. The participants will be able not only to complement their current knowledge and exchange their experiences and ideas, but also to develop research skills under the guidance of experienced scientists and practitioners during the training sessions. The conference will also facilitate sketching future directions and perspectives of studies, interdisciplinary research, and establishing collaborations with researchers from different scientific institutions.
