We now have rescheduled the conference to be held from 13th - 16th October 2021. 

We will also organise online conference facilities for those who are not
able to travel to China due to current travel restrictions.



The canopy is the defining component of any forest ecosystem and harbours a large share of global biodiversity. The canopy community is vitally important for the essential roles in ecosystem functions and services. The development of new technologies and infrastructure, such as remote sensing and global network of canopy cranes, have propelled canopy science into a new era. Canopy science is now undergoing an exciting, radical change of approach from descriptive studies to experimental manipulations. However, there remain many challenges in understanding canopy systems in order to make predictions about the consequences of global-scale human disturbances and their impact on forest ecosystems.  

The International Canopy Conference is held every four years and aims to showcase the latest studies and advances in the field of canopy science and to discuss future research directions in canopy ecology and other related disciplines. In 2021 (rescheduled from 2020), the 8th International Canopy Conference will be held at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Yunnan Province, China, from the 13th to 16th October 2021 under the theme entitled “Roles of the forest canopy in a changing world”.
