Scientific Summary No. 85, 2011
At the IUFRO restoration conference held from 27-29 September 2011 in Madrid, Spain, scientists and practitioners addressed the new challenges associated with forest restoration under stressful site conditions. The necessity to appraise benefits of new techniques in relation to the entire restoration process was emphasized. They identified, among other things, a need for increased specificity of the research focus toward the challenges faced in complex restoration environments. The participants committed to reinforce their role as a multidisciplinary working group that periodically gathers foresters, ecologists, and natural resources economists to collectively address forest restoration issues.
