Dendrochronology, Ecophysiology and Below-ground Biodiversity Workshop

8th - 12 th June 2015

Conference room Hotel CePTOR (Banoštor-Andrevlje, Fruška gora, R Serbia)

Workshop is financed by:


EUFORINNO, European Forest Research and Innovation (RegPot No. 315982)

Who should attend the workshop

Main goal of the workshop is to present novel methods in dendrochronology, ecophysiology and below-ground biodiversity research. Workshop is not limited to a specific age group or degree group, however we encourage participation of younger researcher, post docs and doctoral students.

Limited number of participants

Number of participants is limited to 25. If this limit is exceeded, we will apply simple rule and select those participants that apply first.
