working in forest

We are pleased to announce that the 8th North American Forest Ecology Workshop will be held at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center, in Roanoke, Virginia. The conference will allow forest ecologists from Canada, Mexico, and the United States to gather and exchange current research and management approaches within the backdrop of the hardwood forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The conference theme, "Forest Ecology in a Managed Landscape," reflects some of the challenges and opportunities faced by forest ecologists working in the southeastern United States – a region dominated by short-rotation pine plantations. Mid-conference field trips will allow attendees to tour local production-oriented pine forests, naturally regenerated hardwood forests, and nature preserves established to conserve some of the high biodiversity of the southern Appalachian Mountains.
