The Newforests project is arriving to its end. In this link you can check the published SCI articles framed in the project.
Within the Newforests project framework, a new course on Statistical Modelling for Forest Sciences is organized for the first week of July 2015. Dr. Marc Mazzerole will come from Abitibi UQAT to Solsona to share advance methods in statistics used in forest sciences. Both if you are working on forest administration or forest research, or if you are interested in this discipline, don’t hesitate and join up the course. More information here
The CEF member Yves Bergeron has visited Solsona headquarters and has met with the different research groups in order to identify common approaches and establish new research priorities in the Newforests project framework. Yves Bergeron and Francine Tremblay also presented their work in an open seminar.
On november 4th-5th the “Colloque De Bois et de Services: Aménager dans un monde changeant” will be conducted in Shawinigan, Quebec. Newforests Canadian members will participate as speakers, and european members will be among the assistant public.
Brian Harvey and Suzanne Brais presented in the Forest Sciences Center of Catalonia their work carried out in the UQAT. Brian Harvey presented “Modelling stand dynamics after partial harvesting in eastern Canadian boreal mixedwoods” and Suzanne Brais “Deadwood, fungi and decomposition (with emphasis on the boreal forest)”. Great conferences!
The last 29th and 30th April took place 8th Annual Meeting of the Centre for Forest Research in the Botanical Garden of Montreal. The meeting brought together a record number of participants, 258 researchers and students!

During the last 24th and 25th March, Newforests members participated in the Yves Bergeron’s student annual meeting at the Lac Duparquet Research Station. Over thirty students and researchers introduced their work and discussed different topics. Newforests members were present both among thesis directors and among students. In addition to the formal presentations and meetings, an afternoon of ice fishing allowed people to socialize.

For three days (3-5 February 2014) representatives of each partner will meet in Montreal to discuss about project governance, to develop a program of activities and to introduce all the members facilitating future researchers’ exchange. People from CEF are invited to participate and introduce their research lines. Looking forward to meet all together!
