A symposium (a snooty word for "a formal meeting at which several specialists deliver short addresses on a topic or on related topics; see: Colloquium") titled "Natural Disturbances and Historic Range of Variation in Central Hardwood Forests" is scheduled for Thursday, April 3, 2014.
The U.S. Forest Service Southern Research Station will host the colloquium at the annual meeting of the Association of Southeastern Biologists in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The purpose of this "convivial party (as after a banquet in ancient Greece) with music and conversation" is to provide land managers, researchers, students and others with "state-of-the-knowledge about the historic range of variation of natural disturbance" in upland hardwood forests of the Central Hardwood Region.
Attendees must register for the meeting. Fees will be discounted for early registrants.
Information shared at this meeting could affect the revision of the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests management plan, which is now underway.
