IV International Yew workshop

From 23 to 25 October 2014, the CTFC organizes the  IV International Yew workshop into the Taxus Life project’s frame.

At the end of October, it’s organized on Poblet the IV International Yew Workshop. The first objective of looking in greater depth at the knowledge, preservation and dissemination of the natural and cultural values of yew forests as an extraordinary, unique, threatened ecosystem in the northern hemisphere. A second objective, which is no less important than the first one, is to open up the field of vision towards the challenges of managing and preserving European forest systems in the 21st century, in the context of global change, and paying special attention to the Mediterranean habitats of the Natura 2000 Network, of which yew forests are a clear, representative example.

The previous editions of the Yew Workshop, held in Alcoi (2006), Olot (2008) and Ponferrada (2010) were special occasions to share the latest knowledge about yew trees and yew forests and preservation measures. The possibility of periodically bringing together experts in the different areas of the subject allows for an unquestionable advance in the improvement of management that we should not pass over.

Thanks to the European Life Taxus project, there is once again the possibility of bringing together experts from different countries for a necessary exchange of information, interests and experiences. Focused on the new preservation challenges, we would like to advance in the knowledge, dissemination and preservation of yew forests as a unique ecosystem. This workshop proposal is open to people that for different reasons are interested in the subject
