Scientific Summary 129 in IUFRO News Vol. 44, Issue 4, April 2015
From 9-11 April 2015, the "International Conference on Coppice Forests: Past Present and Future" took place at Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic. The purpose of the meeting was to assess aspects of coppice forest management systems including silviculture and regeneration, ecology and biodiversity, ecophysiology and tree ecology, socio-economics, production, history and dendrochronology.
Several presentations made it clear that coppicing may present a useful alternative forest management system especially in less fertile, drought-stressed environments, and in places where it is important to protect sites, wildlife habitat, and biodiversity by maintaining continuous forest cover.
