In framework of activities of the working group “Ecology and Environment” of the German Region of the International Biometric Society, this working group joined the forest biometry section of the German Association of Forest Research Institutes (DVFFA) to organize the session “Aktuelle Entwicklungen bei Datenerfassung, Auswertung und Modellierung in der Forstwissenschaft” during the FoWiTa conference 2016 in Freiburg. The session will be chaired by Hoooman Latifi and Wolfgang Falk and will host 10 selected oral presentations and 10 posters on data- and model-assisted advancements in analyzing forest data.

In addition, Steven Hill will also represent LSFE by presenting an oral contribution on “LiDAR-gestützte Erfassung von einzelbaum-und bestandsbasierte Waldentwicklung nach natürlichen Störungsprozessen”. Further information on the conference program can be retrieved here.
