About the event

The Białowieża Ecology Conference (BEC) is a series of international scientific conferences that aim to gather a better understanding of temperate forest ecosystems. The BEC takes place in the heart of Europe’s last primeval lowland forest, Białowieża, Poland. This year, 2024 marks the first edition, entitled “Temperate Forests in the Anthropocene: disturbances, species, humans and ecosystem functioning”. The goal of the conference is to exchange and summarize knowledge in the fields of forest ecology and conservation biology, connect researchers working in a variety of scientific fields, and discuss practical solutions for more sustainable forest management and biodiversity conservation in a context of global change. A multitude of research topics are included in this conference to cross-fertilize approaches that yield a better understanding of temperate forests in socio-ecological contexts. The event will be held on-site and online. Additionally, this conference offers a varied selection of workshops, ranging from data management and analyses to good mentorship practices. Furthermore, early career researchers will be given the opportunity to attend a separate seminar prior to the conference. Finally, all conference attendees will be offered the opportunity to participate in a post-conference excursion. For more details, see “About the Conference”.
