Stand Dynamics and Silviculture

We study stand dynamics and how they can be influenced by man. We thereby focus on the following topics:

  • Growth and yield research

  • Forest dynamics in forest reserves

  • Virgin forest research in the Ukraine

  • Adaptation of forest trees to climate change

  • Close-to-nature silvicultural strategies

  • Forest succession and young forest tending

  • Forest-ungulate interactions and browsing

We maintain and manage a net of long-term permanent plots and use the data in simulation models of forest dynamics. Our research contributes to an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable forest management.
