What are the effects of even-aged and uneven-aged forests management on boreal forest biodiversity in Northern Europe and Russia?
Biodiversity is vital for human well-being, but it is threatened by human actions world-wide. In boreal zone, harvesting and management of forests at industrial scale is the most important factor of habitat change and degradation. Over time different forest management regimes have been implemented but their impact on biodiversity at different spatial and temporal scale has not been systematically reviewed. Hence, a systematic review was planned.
The original research topic was ‘What is the role of production forests in biodiversity conservation?’ This rather broad topic was discussed in stakeholder meeting 23.08.18 and defined into two research questions :
- What are the stand-level effects of even-aged and uneven-aged forest management on boreal forest biodiversity in Fennoscandia and European Russia?
- What is the effect of forest management on boreal forest biodiversity in Fennoscandia and European Russia at landscape level?
The review team is screening for relevant research data on the topic of the review so should you or your organization have any published or unpublished data answering the research questions please contact us! All the organizational identification information will be removed from the data.
