DescriptionKorean pine-broadleaved forests are very biologically diverse. In the Russian Far East, these forests are subject to a high level of use by humans and are systematically influenced by fire. Intensive exploitation in the past has led to a decrease in the resource potential. Sound decisionmaking and scientific advancement have lacked sufficient exchange of scientific information. A symposium was convened to share information through presentations of a comprehensive set of topics including forest structure, seed science, genetics, regeneration, fire, wildlife biodiversity, non-timber forest products, economics, and forest management. The main focus of the symposium was the Russian Far East with some participation from Japan and the United States of America. Because Siberian pine dominates in Siberia, several presentations and abstracts also address this forest species.
