Many non-wood forest products (NWFPs) such as mushrooms and berries are collected and consumed in Europe; but both national statistical and scientific data on this topic are reported only for a limited number of countries, products and case-study areas. Their importance as source of food and income, their links to recreation and cultural heritage, are all under-valued in forest-focused and forest-related policies.

Join Marko Lovric, senior researcher at European Forest Institute, for a discussion about the European Union and the bioeconomy.

This webinar series is hosted by the IUFRO Task Force, USDA Forest Service, The Forest History Society, and Renmin University of China.
