Dear colleagues, on behalf of the Department of Enviromental and natural resources studies at the Faculty of Regional Development and International studies at Mendel University, we would like to invite you to an international conference„THE ROLE OF FOREST FUNCTIONS WITHIN ECOSYSTEM SERVICES“, which is held as part of the project EHP „Increasing awareness and propagation of functions of forests in landscape and in-nature riverbeds in urban environment as a component of ecosystem drainage basin service“
The aim of the conference is to contribute to the development of knowledge and possibilities of quantification of ecosystem production and social utilisation of forests functions. The goal of the conference is also to contribute to identification of functions of forests as an integral part and a natural base for evaluation of ecosystem services of forests. Last but not least, the conference serves as a platform for presentation of analyses of forest ecosystems as a way to evaluate the functional effects of forests.
The main topic – The importance and position of forest functions within ecosystem services and their ecological and economic evaluation.
Topic of the conference:
- Systems of evaluation of ecosystem services in general
- Ecosystem forest services – methods of evaluation, examples and applications
- Natural processes in forest ecosystems as their functional effects
- Carbon-binding forest stand as a part of forest functions
- Importance of biodiversity for production of forest functions
- Perception of importance of forests and forestry by general public
- Willingness to pay for ecosystem services of forests
- Evaluation of functions and ecosystem services of forests as a part of decision making
- Solution of conflicts of social demands on production of forest functions
- Functions of natural vs. commercial forests
- Indicators & economics of polyfunctional forestry
- Importance of forests with regard to territorial and regional development
All the current information are available on: http://www.icabr.com/forests/
No booking fees for invited participations (includes food and accommodation)
Conference contributions will be published either in the magazine Journal of Forest Science.
