IUFRO News Vol. 50, Issue 10, early November 2021
IUFRO World Day has been a major step in the adaptation of the IUFRO network to new ways of meeting, knowledge sharing, and embracing new technologies due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It helped to achieve IUFRO's main goals of making forest science more visible, emphasizing diversity, and strengthening cooperation within our global research network. You can still visit the interactive map to find recorded sessions and static content.
The many online conferences and webinars also show proof of how collaboration in IUFRO continues at a high level despite the restrictions by the pandemic. However, thankfully, this newsletter also contains reports from in-person meetings. The variety of topics ranges from remote sensing, multi-taxon diversity, and biological invasions in forests to silviculture of spruce in the boreal forest, and climate change, among other things.
Several publications involving IUFRO officeholders as authors are presented in this issue. They include reports on forest landscape restoration in Africa, economics of global fire activities, radiation contamination of forest and forest products, and more. Of course, a list of upcoming IUFRO and other meetings is also part of this newsletter.
