Summary:

The International Seminar Series in Forest Conservation 2016 was organised on the theme “Inventory and Monitoring Approaches in Forest Conservation: from Tree to Landscape Scale”. Four lectures were presented online via video conferencing for students completing the Master of Forest Conservation (MFC) degree at the Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, Canada. The lectures highlighted the importance of inventory and monitoring as a foundation for sustainable management and conservation of forest resources. A range of techniques and approaches were demonstrated through case studies, embracing the tree, stand, forest and landscape scales. The lectures were delivered by leading practitioners and researchers in forest conservation.

My thanks to our distinguished speakers for generously giving their time, sharing their expertise and presenting such interesting lectures; and for permission to archive the lectures here.
