Dear Colleagues

We are pleased to announce a second European conference about the value and management of oak-rich, cultural landscapes which will take place in southern Turkey in June 2010.

The conference is jointly organised by Suleyman Demirel University, Isparta, Turkey, Adiyaman University, Adiyaman, Turkey and Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

The aim of the conference is to bring together specialists from different countries and disciplines to share information and current research concerning the importance of oak trees - their past, present and future contribution to European heritage, biodiversity, landscapes, tourism and the Silvopastural* economy.

We hope the conference will enhance recognition of the role and significance of oak trees locally and internationally and look forward to meeting you in Turkey in June 2010.
