Examining Tropical Changes: Resilience in the context of Disturbance and Transgression

The 25th Annual Conference of Yale ISTF will delve into the conditions surrounding global challenges to tropical systems and highlight the perseverance of forests and their people. This conference will demand reflection on past lessons learned as well as focus on urgent present actions and problem-solving for the future. Understanding where we have failed, where we have succeeded, and how we should move forward is essential. For the 2019 ISTF Conference, we invite academics, practitioners, policy-makers, activists and forest-dwelling peoples to share the challenges and opportunities in tropical forest landscapes and the survival of these complex networks in the face of global disturbances and transgressions.
