Plans for Upcoming Events

One of the aims of the Unit is to continue organizing sessions or conferences, especially helping to continue the series of Conferences on Biodiversity in forests.

We would also like to promote training sessions on approaches or techniques that could be useful for the topics of the unit, along Conferences or independently.

We also envision to produce synthesis, technical, position or opinion publication(s) of general relevance for the unit.
