Forest Seedling Root Development and Function for Reforestation and Restoration;
online; 19-21 October 2021; 8:00AM to 10:40AM (PDT, UTC-7)
IUFRO Units involved: 1.01.03, 1.06.00 and 3.02.00.
This IUFRO symposium is intended to provide a forum for exchange of ideas related to principles of root development in nursery seedlings and juvenile forest trees. Emphasis will be placed on the development of effective and environmentally sound technologies to optimize seedling quality and promote reforestation and forest restoration operations. Speaker topics will focus on seedling root development in the nursery and in the field. The program is aimed toward an international audience of nursery and forest practitioners, scientists, and educators. Presentations will be of excellent scientific quality while also providing new, useful information which can be readily and widely applied to nursery and forest practices.
The symposium is being organized by Western Forestry and Conservation Association, Purdue University, and USDA Forest Service with support from IUFRO divisions 1.01.03 (Temperate Forest Regeneration), 1.06.00 (Restoration of Degraded Sites), and 3.02.00 (Stand Establishment and Treatment).
