ClimTree 2013
International Conference
Climate Change and Tree Responses in Central European Forests
Zürich, Switzerland
September 1-5, 2013

The conference aims at exchanging state of the art research regarding direct (physical environment) and indirect effects (interspecific interactions) of climate change (CC) on the performance of trees and forest ecosystems. Topics to be discussed range from tree physiology and genetics, to disturbances and community diversity. The conference will maintain a clear regional focus on Central Europe including the Alps and Carpathians. Keynotes on the response of trees and forest ecosystems to CC in the focal region and in other regions of the world will frame the sessions, which are open for contributed talks.
