2nd IUFRO Conference on Complex Forest Ecosystems: from Tree to Landscape

Southern Mensurationists Annual Meeting

New Orleans, LA- Oct 7-9, 2013

A forest is the most complex of the terrestrial ecosystems, and significant efforts have been made to understand and model the mechanisms undelying its behavior. The technological advancements of the last two decades have allowed development of sophisticated approaches to assessing complexity as well as integrating scale, measurements and accuracy into the understanding of response of the forest to different stimuli. The purpose of this conference is to introduce the latest advances in representation, quantification, measurement, analysis, and modeling of forest cover “from tree to landscape”.


  • Measurement and assessment of forest resources
  • Growth and yield models for forest ecosystems
  • Integrating data and models of varying scales
