Increasing natural hazard induced by climate change in forest landscape (fire, windthrow, insects, tree disease, drought, landslide, and flood) requires the knowledge and technique of forest management after the natural disturbance to enhance the ecological resilience.
Meanwhile the ecological resilience can be assessed in various ways depending on the disturbance types, purpose of the assessment, and management goals. Under the situation of shortage in labor and budget for the forest management, we have to find the sustainable way.
We will welcome speakers who are working on the research questions in forest landscape like:
Mapping method suitable for various types of natural disasters,
How can we assess/evaluate the ecological resilience/ forest reestablishment after the natural disturbances?
What is the feature of forest ecosystems with high resilience?
Is there any forest practice/management that reduce/enhance the ecological resilience for climate change adaptation?
Does the forest ecosystem with high resistance have the high resilience?
Are there any nexuses between these forest management and/or the other social/ecosystem management in a teleconnected world?
We will welcome speakers who are working on the research questions in forest landscape: All the studies including concept study, field science, and simulation modelling are welcome.
