The annual meeting of the international research network on cold forests will take place online, from the 2nd to the 4th of November 2020, between 10h and 14h universal time

Dear colleagues, members and friends of the International Research Network on Cold Forests, we are happy to announce our next meeting, virtual this year. Our discussions will be organized around 5 topics and perhaps more :

1. Biodiversity and biogeography of cold forests : from local to global patterns
2. Disturbances and dynamic of cold forests
3. Global change and its impacts : socio-economical responses of cold forests face to climate change
4. Lessons from the past : paleoecology and landscape ecology in cold forests
5. Testing adaptations : forest management and new practices

We also plan to summarize our exchanges to contribute to a special issue on « Natural Disturbances under Climate Change: Challenges, Trends, and Management Implications ↗ » in Forests where your contributions could be integrated and published, think about it !
The submission deadline for your articles is March 15, 2021.
