I would like to make a series of introduction posts to welcome our keynote speakers at the Dead Wood Meeting 2021
Jogeir Stokland, researcher professor, is based at the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (the former Forest Research Institute) in Norway. His dead wood interests rotate around biodiversity, wood decomposition and carbon dynamics in dead wood. He has been doing research on forest biodiversity for more than 30 years and is first author of the book Biodiversity in dead wood. In the Dead Wood Meeting on 28 October, his keynote will cover such topics as tree growth, natural mortality and carbon dynamics in the contexts of climate change and biodiversity conservation.
