About: An international congress on the “Sustainable restoration of Mediterranean forests” will be held in Palermo, Italy, from 19 to 21 April 2017. The Mediterranean region is one of the ‘hot spots’ of ongoing climate change worldwide.
The forests in the region are rapidly changing due to abandonment in many areas or to increasing human impact in others, but also to the spread of alien plant species and pathogens.
The conference aims to bring together researchers, managers, and policy makers to discuss these challenges and how to integrate existing knowledge about forest landscape restoration and forest adaptation in the Mediterranean region with climate change and emerging societal demands.
