2.08.07 - Genetics and silviculture of acacias
3rd IUFRO Acacia Conference 2020: Embracing Transformation for Sustainable Management of Industrial Forest Plantations
POSTPONED TO OCTOBER 2021; online and in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia
Non-native acacias have become dominant components of many SE Asian plantation landscapes. They are increasingly being threatened by insect pests and pathogens. Regional collaboration in SE Asia is urgently needed to lower the arrival and subsequent movement of invasive pests and pathogens and to better manage damage to trees by 'new encounter# or established pests. The theme of the 3rd IUFRO Acacia Conference "Embracing Transformation for Sustainable Management of Industrial Forest Plantation" will address the application of technology and innovation in upstream and downstream R&D. Researchers, plantation managers and policy makers from around the world are encouraged to participate. The conference will share knowledge, research findings and experience from different disciplines, discuss current issues on IFP management and ways forward, and strengthen collaboration among participants. The conference will include invited and contributed presentations, posters, exhibition and post-conference tours.
