FAGUS 2010 - A Successful Symposium

The meeting, which put this economically extremely valuable species of central and southeast Europe in the context of current climate changes, gathered over 200 participants and scientists from 14 countries. Great interest for attendance was also shown by the forestry professionals seeing this as an opportunity to participate in problem-analysis on beech by the experts from many countries including Iran and Japan for the first time. Thanks to the support of IUFRO and EFI and the presence of eminent speakers, high quality of the meeting was assured on the satisfaction of both organizers and all the Symposium participants.

By presenting the results of different studies through papers and posters the FAGUS 2010 Symposium managed to encompass the variety of topics related not only to beech in European context but also the species generally and globally. FAGUS 2010 Symposium accomplished its aim. It strengthened the perception of vital problems which affect beech nowadays and the necessity of further analysis to avoid potential risks and provide adequate answers to secure management of this valuable broadleaf.

Conclusions of the FAGUS 2010 Symposium will be soon available on the official FAGUS 2010 Symposium website.
