The 50th anniversary of Abies IUFRO unit

The first overall fir conference was held in Sapporo (Japan). The main aim of the conference was to bring knowledge on fir species together. The experts and scientists from many countries of the world shared their knowledge on ecology and silviculture of different Abies species.

After 3 years we will meet in Krakow (Poland) to continue exchange of knowledge and experiences on Abies species from gene and species level to population and ecosystem level. In this conference we welcome contributions in the following topics:

  • silviculture of fir species in changing environment
  • management of fir forests in different environmental conditions
  • phylogeny and gene exchange among Abies species
  • protection and conservation of Abies species in changing environment
