First call and instructions for authors (December 2009)


The rapid regression in recent years of natural Taxus sp. populations due to forests fires, climatic change, grazing, and direct human intervention calls for an organised and active strategy to assure their conservation. Regional and national Governments in some countries are organizing several management and conservation plans. However, this is not enough.

The setting up of active plans to conserve yew woods and their habitats is essential. In June 2006, a First International Conferences on Taxus baccata in the Mediterranean area were held in Alcoi (Spain). A Second International meeting was held in Olot (Spain) in summer 2008. Several experts, associations and other groups agreed to increase the study and knowledge of Taxus sp in a wider area. New Conferences will take place in Ponferrada (León council-Spain) under the slogan “Yew: Biodiversity and Culture”.

The Yewtree Friends Association, A Morteira, Leon University and Ponferrada city Council are working together to organize the III International Yew Tree Meeting on March 25 and 26, 2010. Conferences, round tables, exhibitions and other events will be included.
