International Conference

Ozone, climate change and forests

14-16 June 2011, Prague, Czech Republic

Ozone is the air pollutant of most concern to forests and is also a significant greenhouse gas. Climate change factors favour ozone formation and ozone effects on vegetation increase plant predisposition to climatic stressors. The interlinkages between ozone and climate change are thus topical. The conference aims at: summarising the state-of-the-art of ozone science and forest protection from ozone; suggesting the best criteria for monitoring and modelling ozone impacts on forest ecosystems; and developing prospects for research and protection.

The Conference is sponsored by COST Action FP0903 Climate change and Forest Mitigation and Adaptation in a polluted environment (MAFOR). Any scientist is welcome to contribute. Although the focus is on forests, useful insights can come from crop science. Contributions from any field of plant science are thus welcome.

Session 1: Monitoring and modelling of ozone fluxes and effects
Session 2: Ozone standards for forest protection
Session 3: Interaction of ozone effects with climate change
Session 4*: Ozone effects on below-ground part of forest ecosystems
Session 5: ICP Vegetation: insights from crop science
*Joint session with COST Action FP0803
