2 Forests: the challenges Climate change: what impact onto forests?

3 Forests: the challenges Forests and disturbances: what role, what consequences?

4 Forests: the challenges Climate change mitigation: what opportunities?

5 Forests: the challenges Higher timber and fuel production: how sustainable? How profitable?

6 Forests: the challenges Forest management and biodiversity: what interplay?

7 Forests: the challenges Integrative modelling of forest ecosystems: what insight into the future?

8 Ready to address these challenges? Forest growth Ecosystem resilience Climate change Nitrogen cycle Forest management Biodiversity Ecosystem modelling Climate mitigation Vulnerability Timber wood A unique program: Forests & their Environment

9 Why choosing FEN? The rationale Interested in forest protection / sustainable forest management? Want to solve global issues, in an international framework? Looking for an internationally visible degree? Want to work abroad? Interested in research-based training, or research-oriented training? FEN master curriculum provides you with: a training course on forests, 100% English-speaking The diploma «MSc AgroParisTech» research-based training on forest ecosystems with partnership of Université de Lorraine and INRA
