Concepts, methods and tools for an integrated approach of resilience in Mediterranean forest (Zaragoza, Spain, 12-16 December 2016)
The course is jointly organized by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), through the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (IAMZ), and the INFORMED project (INtegrated research on FOrest Resilience and Management in the mEDiterranean), with the collaboration of the Mediterranean Regional Office of the European Forest Institute (EFIMED). The INFORMED project develops a dynamic approach of the resilience of Mediterranean forests facing global change. Its scientific objectives are to fill gaps in knowledge on the basic mechanisms that determine the flexibility of the social-ecological system in response to disturbance; to integrate knowledge by combining different process-based models at various spatial and temporal scales; and to use integrated knowledge to develop management strategies as well as policy and governance guidelines to foster forest system resilience.
