Several papers detail the condition and restoration of the Church of the Transfiguration on Kizhi Island, Russia. Others examine challenges of log structures, such as inspection and evaluation of decay, the role of natural conservation in preservation, and environmental problems in preserving wooden buildings at the Estonian Open Air Museum. Other papers discuss treatment of fungal growth in structures in Denmark, totem pole and house post conservation in Alaska, and preservation of a historic timber hut in Antarctica.
