Organising Commitee

Natural resources such as forest ecosystems offer many functions. Apart from the production of wood and non-wood products, forest ecosystem function is significant in regards to; climate regulation and carbon sequestration; biodiversity, water and soil conservation; rural development; urban life support; community health and the protection of cultural values etc.

The symposium aims to provide a platform for the exchange of interdisciplinary scientific information, as well as offering an open forum for the discussion on the issues related to forestry, in light of new developments. The symposium will have a global focus with the intent of identifying new avenues of research leading to an advancement in research technologies for the benefit of forests, forestry and forest product industry.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Isparta in October 2017.

Oral and poster papers which are not presented at the symposium will not take place in the final version of the abstract book and proceedings of the symposium.
