Main menu


On November 21st, 2018 the 1st SwissForestLab Science Day will take place at the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL.

During this event the research of junior and senior scientists within the SwissForestLab will be highlighted and networking and collaboration will be fostered.

We will start with three keynote lectures covering the three central research topics of the SwissForestLab, namely (1) biodiversity and ecosystem functioning; (2) land-use change and long-term legacies; and (3) climate change effects on forest ecosystems. Short workshops will allow for deepening these topics and develop further project and cooperation ideas. Moreover, in short talks and a poster session research highlights of scientists, groups and institutions will be presented.
