Third International Conference WOOD IN WORLD RIVERS 2015

PADOVA, ITALY  July 6-10 2015
 

INTRODUCTION:

The WWR3-2015, 3rd International Conference Wood in World Rivers aims to analyze the importance of wood of all sizes, both living and dead, and the riparian forests which produce wood, a crucial element for geomorphology, ecology and management of rivers.
Main purposes are to: synthesize the knowledge on the physical dynamics and ecological interactions of wood in streams and rivers in different geographical regions; create a framework for interpreting and applying research results and management systems; assess physical and biological responses of large wood in stream restoration; explore links between physical and ecological dynamics of large wood, resource management systems and the communities and cultures in which they are applied.
 

CONFERENCE TOPICS:

  • Wood and fluvial ecosystems
  • Wood dynamics in rivers
  • Techniques for wood monitoring and modeling
  • Wood perception and management
     

CALL FOR EXTENDED ABSTRACTS:
