IUFRO Spotlight #29 – Supersites for Superior Forest Science

How can we best understand the complex linkages between air pollution and climate change? How can we best understand how forests affect – and are affected by – climate?

And how can we best learn how to mitigate the related hazards and capitalize on the related opportunities?

To learn more about what these Supersites are and how they function, check out the paper posted at:

There you will also find a link to the related publication: Climate Change, Air Pollution and Global Challenges, a cooperative publication of IUFRO Research Group 7.01.00 and the EU-funded COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) Action FP0903 MAFor (Climate Change and Forest Mitigation and Adaptation in a Polluted Environment), suggests a network of Supersites to achieve those aims.
