These are busy times for the Future Forests' Soils and Water project. New colleagues have joined.

Moreover, in December, the annual Forest Conference at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala will see Future Forests' researchers present their latest results on the linkages between soils and water. Read about it all in the November issue of the newsletter Future Forests Update.
Among its highlights are a 'Forest Outlook' by limnologist Hans Oscarsson, member of the Future Forests panel of practitioners, who says fears about the consequences of carrying out the water framework directive in Sweden may be unfounded. In addition, a political science researcher with Umeå University, Camilla Sandström describes the work by Future Forests' researchers to find ways to decrease damage by moose in forests in the Swedish province of Småland. That work is certain to improve routines for managing damage by moose in Swedish forests, argues Annika Nordin, Future Forests programme director, in this year's fifth and final issue of the newsletter.
