The field of forestry has employed various computer-assisted optimisation approaches since the early 1960s to address the efficient allocation of resources towards various forest management objectives. These approaches continue to evolve, and in the last 5 years, the research has expanded to...
Emerging diseases often originate from host shifts of introduced pests or pathogens. Genetic resistance of the host to such diseases might be limited or absent due to the lack of coevolutionary history. We review six examples of major disease outbreaks on native tree species caused by different...
In Europe, like in many temperate lowlands worldwide, forest has a long history of fragmentation and land use change. In many places, forest landscapes consist of patches of different quality, age, size and isolation, embedded in a more or less intensively managed agricultural matrix. As...
Through complementarity interactions, mixed-species forests can be more productive than monocultures, and this effect can increase with tree-species richness. However, this is not always the case. This review examines the processes and stand structural attributes that can influence...
Agroforestry systems potentially deliver win–win solutions to production and biodiversity conservation in the tropics, but they need to be adapted to farmers’ needs. We reviewed the literature on functional roles of biodiversity and resilience in tropical agroforestry systems, and we evaluated...
A developing bioeconomy and the need for alternate sources of energy are promoting a more intensive procurement and use of forest biomass. While it is a fact that increased biomass harvesting generates greater nutrient losses from forest ecosystems relative to stem-only harvesting, the use of...
