Scientific Summary No. 48, 2008

The 8th IUFRO International Beech Symposium in Japan focused on the scientific progress made to meet the identified climate change challenges for beech forests and their management.

At the recent IUFRO beech symposium in Japan participants had a close look at beech-dominated forests and their response to climate change with a view to providing scientific support for proper adaptive management measures. They considered it important to strengthen the linkage between recent advances in research, trends in silviculture, and the sustainable management and adaptation of beech-dominated deciduous forests in order to respond to changing social needs and the global climate.
