ICFR Occasional Seminar - Friday 26 September
This is a reminder about our next Occasional Seminar on Friday 26 September
at the ICFR in Pmb entitled:
geographical shifts in optimum growing areas and suitable species of
production forestry in South Africa with climate change: An analysis of
19 species/hybrids using multiple climate models"
By Professor (Emeritus) Roland Schulze (University of KwaZulu-Natal)
This seminar will focus on the analyses undertaken for Acacia mearnsii
, 13 Eucalyptus
and 5 Pinus
based on projected climate change which implies geographical shifts in
optimum growing areas of commercially grown tree species/hybrids, but also curtailment because of increases in pests/diseases and changes in dominant species grown in different areas.
The seminar should provide considerable insight and thought for long-term planning of the South African Forestry Industry.
ICFR Conference Room, ICFR, Pietermaritzburg, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Carbis Road
