Objective (Subject)Effects of forest management on biodiversity
ContentThe aim of the joint project is to assess the effects of forest management or natural forest dynamics after abandonment on biodiversity in a review. In combination with methodological tests and the processing of existing results and data sets, a conceivable concept for a long-term oriented monitoring system for Germany at the landscape level is to be developed. By this, the effects of forest management on biodiversity may be captured reliably.
