A conference jointly organised by the four working parties of IUFRO subdivision 2.4 (Genetics) with two side events: Genomic Selection workshop & IUFRO Task Force meeting
The objective of this conference - bringing together researchers from the four working parties of IUFRO subdivision 2.4 (Forest Genetics) - is to present and discuss new scientific findings in the area of population, quantitative and evolutionary genetics and how they can be applied in genetic resource conservation and breeding. Participants may submit contributions from empirical, experimental and theoretical pieces of works, that address key leading scientific and applied issues.
We invite you to the Black Forest for the most important German Forest Science Conference and are looking forward to a lively scientific exchange and discussions. The main topics of the conference include:
• Impact of climate change on forests and adaptation strategies of forestry to climate change
• Biodiversity and Conservation
• Intensity of forest use
• The role of the bio-economy for forestry and forest industries
• Evidence-based forestry for a more objective system understanding
Four to five sessions are offered for each of these topics. The sessions are organized and moderated by colleagues from many forestry research institutions from Germany and abroad. In addition, there will also be a session block with free themes.
You are invited to submit conference contributions in the form of oral presentations and posters. For further information about the program of the Forest Science Conference 2016 see www.fowita.de.
In addition to technical sessions, the award ceremony of the German Forest Science Prize, social events and a number of excursions complement the conference programme.
