Recently, the FAO-CIHEAM Inter-Regional Cooperative Research Network on Nuts restored its sub-network on Stone pine that had closed in 2000 after the 1st Symposium on Mediterranean Stone Pine hold that year in Valladolid (Spain), linked with the former Cooperative Research Network on Stone pine silviculture in the framework of FAO Silva Mediterranea (1987-1997). In this context, the international meeting AGROPINE2011 aims to get the main research groups and potential users together, to gather the current knowledge on Mediterranean stone pine as nut crop and to analyse its potential and current challenges.
See attached files (1st. and 2nd. announcements).
