The International Scientific Conference „Forest Science for a Sustainable Forestry and Human Wellbeing in a Changing World” – INCDS „Marin Drăcea” 85 Years of Activity, Centenary of The Great Union in 1918” is an open scientific event dedicated to the anniversary of 85 years of activity in forestry research of the National Institute for Research and Development in Forestry „Marin Drăcea”.
In 2018 this great anniversary event coincides with the celebration of 100 years since the Great Union of the Romanian historical provinces.
The conference is focused on forest research, with a large range of topics, including: the impacts of air pollution, climate change, biotic and abiotic stressors on forest resources status, adaptive management, modelling and mapping of forest ecosystems and their services, genetics, protected areas, ecological connectivity, new Earth-Observation technologies applied in forestry field.
1. to increase the visibility of forest science in the global change research policy;
2. to develop the link between forest science and practices in a changing environment and society;
3. to monitor forest health, resources and ecosystem services for a sustainable adaptive management in the context of climate change, atmospheric pollution and other biotic and abiotic stressors;
4. to promote new management concepts, methods and techniques for nature and forest genetic resources conservation.
