We cordially invite you to participate in the International Conference “Science and Practice in Forest Ecology” organized by the Institute of Dendrology, Polish Academy of Sciences, on 18-20 May 2020.
The aim of the Conference will be to discuss the results of research in the field of forest ecology, including changes in forest ecosystems at local, regional and global levels. The conference is addressed to researchers representing the fields of forest science, evolutionary biology, functional ecology, mycology, reproductive biology, invasion biology and conservation genetics, who will get the opportunity to present the results of their research and also to develop research skills under the guidance of experienced scientists and practitioners during the workshops. The conference will also facilitate sketching future directions and perspectives of studies, interdisciplinary research, and establishing collaborations with researchers from different scientific institutions.
GENERAL CONFERENCE PLAN:
1st day - leading lectures and researchers presentations
Seven leading lectures of the plenary session will be presented by the scientific staff of the Institute of Dendrology, Polish Academy of Sciences, and conference participants selected by the Scientific Committee.
2nd day - researchers presentations
