The final CAR-ES conference is to be held in Copenhagen, the 3rd – 5th of November 2015
Managing Forests to Promote Environmental Services:
Climate change adaptation and mitigation, water protection, biodiversity conservation, and soil quality maintenance
Carbon sequestration, water protection and biodiversity are key environmental services provided by the Nordic and Baltic forests, and each of them are linked to soil properties and quality. Various types of forest management have different effects on these services, and knowledge on how the forest management can help maintain and enhance them is crucial to sound decision making in the forest sector and in policy development.
The conference is being arranged to properly round-off the activities of the SNS funded CAR-ES network for the 2011-2015 period. All researchers working with these topics are warmly invited to present their work. The conference will present state-of-the-art, and identify knowledge gaps to be addressed in the future. Also other stakeholders are invited to participate and present.
CAR – ES is hoping to see as many of you as possible!!
