Forests are key ecosystems for the maintenance of biodiversity and the sustainable provision of ecosystem services. Still, there are many gaps in our understanding of the functional role of forests at ecosystem and landscape scales.
Our meeting theme, "The Green-Blue Nexus", addresses the conflict between provisioning services (the "Green"), such as timber / biomass and forest by-products (food and fodder) and regulating services (the "Blue") (e.g., cleaning drinking water, flood and erosion regulation) in relation to other impacts on biodiversity and the supporting structures and key ecological processes that enable the supply of these services.
We aim to address to what extent and how the status of any particular forest ecosystem and its temporal dynamics should be included in the overall assessment of ecosystems and their services at larger scales such as landscape scale. Such understanding is indispensable to adaptive management at multiple scales and the assessment of land use changes that might increase or decrease forest areas, including transitional states, and the availability of ecosystem services.
