Save-the-date: XII Congresso Nazionale SISEF (Palermo, 12-15 Novembre 2019)

Le foreste in Europa sono in continuo aumento ma, allo stesso tempo, sono minacciate dal cambiamento climatico, dalla pressione antropica e da altri fattori di rischio. Lo scambio e il confronto tra le esperienze maturate in ambito mediterraneo ed esperienze sviluppate in altri ambienti, nelle attività di ricerca e di gestione, arricchiranno il panorama delle possibilità di intervento, di applicazione della selvicoltura e di sviluppo del territorio, per la valorizzazione dei servizi ecosistemici delle foreste e delle attività economiche.

Call for Abstracts, EGU 2019: sessions BG2.1 and BG1.55

Vienna, 7-12 April 2019 Sessione BG2.1 “Forest management and climate change: From theory to applications” Convener: Fabrizio D’Aprile, co-convener: Ugo Chiavetta https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2019/session/32145 In general, the mechanisms that explain how climate variability influences tree growth are known. However, how growth responses vary and distribute among health and viability classes within forest tree populations need to be better understood and pointed out to apply forest planning management under changing climate conditions. Predicting the influence of trends and variability in climate variables on forest health and/or growth responses in the medium term may be a key to develop methods to make climate variability … Continua a leggere Call for Abstracts, EGU 2019: sessions BG2.1 and BG1.55

EGU2018 (Vienna, Austria – 8-13 Apr 2018) – Call for abstracts

Changing climate conditions are known to influence forest tree growth response and the CO2 cycle. Dendroclimatological research has shown that the climate signal, species composition, and growth trends have changed in different types of forest ecosystems during the last century. Under current and demonstrated changes in climate variability at the geographic, regional, and local levels tree growth shows also variability and trends that can be non-stationary during time even at relatively short distance between sites. In forest planning and management, yield tables, site quality indices, age class, rate of growth, and spatial distribution are some of the most used tools and parameters. However, these methods do not involve climate variability during time although climate is the main driver in trends of forest and tree growth. Previous research warns about the risk that forest management under changing climatic conditions could amplify their negative effects.
