Our Uneven-aged Silviculture research group was involved in developing two technical sessions:
"Uneven-aged silviculture in temperate and tropical forests: Towards paradigm expansion." Co-organized with IUFRO 1.02.04, this session attempted to foster sharing of information on management of uneven-aged forests in temperate, boreal and tropical forests.
"Silviculture and global change: Managing forests for ecosystem resiliency and carbon storage." This session addressed strategies to improve resiliency/adaptability of forests and carbon storage through silvicultural design of forest structures. Although this session has a weaker tie to the objectives of our Research Group, uneven-aged silviculture nonetheless will play an important role in mitigating global change scenarios.
- 6th IUFRO Workshop on Uneven-aged Silviculture; Shizuoka, Japan; 24-27 October 2009. Conference homepage
- Old forests – New Management, Hobart, Australia, 17-21 February 2008. Conference homepage
- Our Research Group co-hosted a session in the 2005 Congress in Brisbane, Australia called "Uneven-aged Silviculture: From Temperate to Tropical Forests". The session was cosponsored by IUFRO Unit 1.07.18 "Forest dynamics and yield regulation systems for tropical/subtropical moist forests". We had 7 papers presented and a number of posters. The session was extremely well attended but was unfortunately assigned to too small a room to include everyone who wanted to attend.
