Guest Lecture Series

Each year the RTG invites well known scholars in the field of forest sciences, biology and statistics for guest lectures.
Some of our guest lecture series is organized in cooperation with RTG 2123 "Conservation of Forest Biodiversity in Multiple-Use Landscapes of Central Europe" in Freiburg and will take place in an online format via zoom.

The next guest lecture will be given by Prof. Hans Lambers on February 19, 2024 at 2 pm on "Dirt-poor soils, pesky parasites and friendly fungi shape plant diversity in south-western Australia".

For our previous guest lectures see the list in the right column.

In addition, EnriCo held 2 mini conferences:

"The Numbers behind Forests"

As part of our Guest Lecture Series, we have the pleasure again to welcome an incredible group of researchers for a mini conference: During the conference entitled The Numbers behind Forests, the invited researchers will offer a unique number-driven perspective on forests. The conference is part of the Forest Science Week, jointly organized with our colleagues from the Postdoc Network of the Forest Faculty. It will take place on:

Tuesday, November 28 (1 - 5 pm)
at Büsgenweg 3, room F03 [and streamed via zoom]
