International conference on "Regenerating Mountain Forests" (RMF 2004)

The RMF 2004 is hosted by the Chair of Silviculture of the Technische Universität München. It is a joint conference of the following IUFRO units: 1.05.14 Sustainable management and silviculture in mountain forests, 1.05.08 Temperate forest regeneration, and 1.05.00 Silviculture for sustainable multifunctional forests.

The aim of this conference is to gather experts in the field of regenerating mountain forests to discuss their latest findings, novel approaches, and best practices related to the following provisional topics:

  • Natural regeneration (seed production and dispersal, seedling establishment, growth and survival, silvicultural techniques to promote regeneration, impact of game)
  • Artificial regeneration (afforestation, restoration, planting techniques)
  • Target values of regeneration on stand and landscape levels for sustainability of mountain forests management
  • Economic and social impacts on mountain forest regeneration
