Shaping future forests: Final STReESS meeting Understanding tree responses to extreme climate events

13 & 14 April 2016, Berlin

Extreme events associated with climate change are aecting European forests,
putting ecosystem services at risk. Assessing these risks is the driving force behind
“ STReESS ” , an interdisciplinary COST Action community operating at the overlap
of different disciplines. Our tree centered, bottom-up, approach allows us to assess
mechanistic understanding of short- and long-term growth responses to climate change
induced stress, including crucial aspects as plasticity, mortality, and adaptation, which largely determine forest resilience. A powerful example of the strength of this concept is illustrated by interconnecting twittering trees across Europe creating a network enabling near-real time assessment of forest stress responses and establishment of early-warning stress detection features.
