The call for abstracts is now open for the International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA) Conference on Sustainable and Climate Resilient Forest Management to be held 28-31 August 2023 in Helsinki, Finland.
The bi-annual conference will bring together researchers, companies, policymakers, and members of civil society to discuss the future of boreal forests, the second most extensive terrestrial biome on earth.
The boreal forest is experiencing environmental changes at rates that are unprecedented. Changing climates are increasing disturbances such as wildfires or insect outbreaks. Many boreal ecosystems are shifting to new ecological states, affecting the people who are relying on these ecosystems for subsistence living, cultural practices, economic development or climate stability. This is why the 20th IBFRA conference is focused on Climate resilient and sustainable forest management.
Abstract submissions are welcome for both oral and poster presentations. Please submit your abstract by 30 January 2023.
