Call for papers: Oxford Centre for Tropical Forests

The Oxford Centre for Tropical Forests (OCTF)will host an international conference to provide a multidisciplinary approach to the effects of climate change and deforestation on the fate of African tropical forests in the 21st century. Papers which explore the following issues are encouraged, namely; - What are the potential scenarios of climate change and land use change for African forest regions? - What do we know about the sensitivity of African forests and their communities to these changes, and what consequences will these changes have for the future of the region? How can this knowledge influence policy decisions on development and climate change adaptation and waht are the gaps in our knowledge and priorities for research. More info is available on:
