Conference on forest canopies in China

China’s first International Workshop on Forest Canopy Researchwas held in Kunming, capital of the Yunnan, in 2006. The subjects addressed were above all relayed to the risks associated with climate change: carbon flows, canopy temperatures, the impact in the increase in atmospheric CO2 on the growth of biomass, evolution of the albedo, etc. Ecotourism was mentioned, as was ‘canopy farming’ and the search for animals and Orchidae thatmight be beneficial for the economy.

In 2013, a crane was set up at Buben (Yunnan) and is currently used for numerous research projects.
