Dead Wood Meeting 2021
Student and research symposium on methods and approaches in dead wood science
Registration is free, open until 10 October 2021. Prepare your 150 words abstract (presenters only) and register here.
The intensive three-day symposium program is comprised by keynote and contributed lectures by established dead wood researchers, and student presentations. In addition, a satellite workshop on managing interaction data will be arranged. The target group is advanced master and PhD students, but anyone with research interest and experience in dead wood ecology is welcome. The symposium is not suitable for absolute beginners in dead wood research, but use books recommended below to build or update your knowledge before joining the event. The goal of this symposium is to create an environment for communication among dead wood scholars and to close the gap between the university lectures and the real-life of a researcher and a conservationist, as well as promote connections across disciplines. We will go through a broad range of topics, such as biodiversity in dead wood in boreal and temperate environments, biodiversity conservation and restoration, and of course all kinds of lignicolous organisms: fungi, insects, and more.
