|The group has diverse research interests in the boreal forest, including global carbon stock estimation, climate change impacts, ecosystem service trade-offs and synergies as well as internalisation in boreal forest policy. The aim of the workshop, and the conference symposium in October, is to draw more attention to the boreal forest at an international level, particularly in the light of climate change, mitigation opportunities and broader discussions of sustainability.
