Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you about our session at the IUFRO World Congress: B4d Global monitoring network of tree mortality patterns and trends

This inaugural meeting of the IUFRO Task Force ‘Global monitoring network of tree mortality patterns and trends’ aims to facilitate: sharing of knowledge about best methods for data collection, integration of existing field data sources, and facilitation of an approach for data sharing; interdisciplinary and international collaboration for a coordinated integration of different data sources and knowledge analyses; identification of areas of rapid changes in forest cover, and derivation of “mechanistic” relationships from monitoring and field observations for global vegetation models.

The session promotes collaboration and exchange, across existing forest inventory, field monitoring networks, and remote sensing products as well as across scientific disciplines and data depositories.
