    The 25th Annual Conference of the Yale Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) will take place January 31-February 2, 2019 in New Haven, CT. Registration and abstract submissions for posters, breakout sessions, tools & skills expo, and flash talks are now open and due November 14, 2018: https://istf.yale.edu/2019-conference

    The Yale ISTF Chapter is dedicated to the advancement of tropical forest studies at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The ISTF Conference has been hosted at Yale for 25 years and is the longest-running entirely student-run conference at Yale University, bringing together representatives from governments, nonprofits, academia, and private sector to discuss vital issues related to tropical forests.

    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 perseverance of these complex networks in the face of global disturbances and transgressions. As climate change disturbances and human transgressions continue to worsen, actions and solutions must be delivered at a much faster pace. The 25th Annual Yale ISTF Conference will demand reflection on past lessons while envisioning the next 25 years of tropical forestry in a rapidly changing world.
