2nd Restoring Forests Congress


October 14, 2014 - October 16, 2014


Lafayette, Indiana, USA


International Union of Forest Research Organizations


This 2nd Restoring Forests Congress will continue to communicate advances in the themes that were addressed in the 1st Congress in 2011 in Madrid, Spain. Yet, we will also explore what constitutes restoration in the 21st Century by re-defining the scope of forest restoration and narrowing our vision of restoration success in relation to a realistic, achievable end result. This conference will also highlight the need to continually integrate genetics into forest restoration, especially in relation to re-defining species selection and seed zones in relation to global change.
