7th ICP Forests Scientific Conference, 22-23 May 2018, Riga, Latvia

European forests in a changing environment – air pollution, climate change and forest management

Three decades of monitoring effects of air pollution in the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests) under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) has provided long-term data series and a unique asset for the evaluation of status, trends and processes in European forest ecosystems in a changing environment. This year, the 7th ICP Forests Scientific Conference will focus on the possibilities for mitigating the consequences of environmental changes by selecting suitable tree species and using proper silvicultural methods.
