We are pleased, to welcome you to the forthcoming LWF-Pfynwald Workshop on 16 November 2015 at WSL Birmensdorf. While the annual LWF Apéro has a long tradition, we are happy to announce a slightly different stage for this year. The LWF Apéro and the annual Pfynwald Workshop are being merged to one event.
While the LWF research program puts emphasize on long-term monitoring, the Irrigation Experiment at Pfynwald allows for experimental long-term monitoring, with TreeNet and Sanasilva, the most prominent projects being established on both platforms.
We are keen on sharing and discussing your ideas and the latest project results from the fields of long-term monitoring, tree mortality, wood anatomy, NSC dynamics, carbon- and water cycles, nutrient budget, root growth and decomposition, dendrochronology, isotope analysis, vegetation composition and remote sensing.
Furthermore, we are proud to welcome Nate McDowell from the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Christian Körner from the University of Basel as invited key-note speakers. They both have agreed to perform a „friendly debate“ on the different perspectives on carbon starvation and hydraulic failure under climate change.
Please, find following the Program as well as the Directions to the WSL. Lunch and beverages are offered by the LWF research program and the Research unit Forest Dynamics. After the workshop, you are kindly invited to join us for the annual LWF Apéro with wine and cheese.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
