El proper 8 de junt el Centre Tecnològic Forestal de Catalunya organitza un seminari sobre pertorbacions i resiliència als ecosistemes forestals mediterranis.
Recent socio-economic changes together with predicted climate warming are inducing significant impacts on the functioning and dynamics of Mediterranean forests. In this context of change, the role of natural disturbances in the future evolution of these forests is expected to increase. There is a general consensus that the next generation of forest practices should be able to adapt and respond to the increasing variability and uncertainty in disturbance dynamics. Understanding how natural disturbances relate with human practices and identifying the key factors determining the response of forest to its occurrence constitutes a first step for this.
