Announcement: TF Online Survey on Forest Adaptation and Restoration

The Task Force is glad to announce that Online Survey on Forest Adaptation and Restoration is now online available under: http://gdi.thuenen.de/wo/limesurvey/index.php/883655?lang=en.

Additional languages will be added within the next weeks. For any remarks to the survey (content and technical aspects), please contact directly Markus Hoehl (markus.hoehl(at)thuenen.de).


What are the aims and activities?

The Task Force's conceptual pathway work is following three aims: (1) Identifying knowledge gaps, (2) comparing existing activities and techniques, and (3) elaborating best practice approaches.

The work plan:

  • Retrospective knowledge (gap) analyses (2015-2017)
    Continental/regional workshops  - state of the knowledge reviews
  • Collaborative compilation and analyses (2015-2017)
    Data compilation and meta-analyses, storage in central open database
  • Conception and implementation of research and monitoring networks on AM (2015-2019)
    Joint research needs and concepts, methods and activities
  • Elaboration of best practice approaches (2015-2019)
    Compiling results and experiences, elaborating best practice examples
