IUFRO News Vol. 41, Issue 8, August 2012
IUFRO was represented in an international group of 14 specialists who attended a Seminar on Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) in Pyongyang, DPR Korea, in March. From the discussions during the seminar and field trip it became clear that the Korean hosts had great interest in establishing collaboration in the field of FLR. Further meeting reports in this issue inform about conferences in boreal mixedwoods in Canada and about alien invasive species. The announcement section includes positions, proceedings, grants etc. In any case, mark your calendars for the 3rd IUFRO Latin American Congress in June 2013 in San José, Costa Rica, and the 24th IUFRO World Congress in October 2014 in Salt Lake City, USA.
