This study presents a global analysis of forest cover and forest protection. An updated Global Forest Map (using MODIS2005) provided a current assessment of forest cover within 20 natural forest types. This map was overlaid onto WWF realms and ecoregions to gain additional biogeographic information on forest distribution. Using the 2008 World Database on(More)
Beech forests previously covered substantial areas of the continental region of Europe, however, their current distribution is limited to a small percentage of their former yet still potential range. Many beech forests are now protected under the European Union-wide conservation approach of Natura 2000. We analyse the impact of Natura 2000 on the management(More)

This article addresses the German debate on the issue of the common welfare designation of public forests. In the first part, drawing on two case studies, the political discourse on the issue is introduced. Two major competing ‘story lines’ can be made out that are both based on a long tradition of controversially discussed concepts of regulatory forest(More)
Scientific studies reveal significant consequences of climate change for nature, from ecosystems to individual species. Such studies are important factors in policy decisions on forest conservation and management in Europe. However, while research has shown that climate change research start to impact on European conservation policies like Natura 2000,(More)
Since the 1980s awareness for global biological diversity loss has been rising constantly. The<lb>adoption of the Convention on Biological Biodiversity (CBD) at the Rio World Summit in 1992 initiated a large number of measures to protect global biodiversity. However, the<lb>observed trend in biodiversity loss has not been reversed yet. WWF’s Living Planet(More)
Method validation guidelines, which provide an organizational structure for the design and evaluation of a validation procedure, are presented for a wide range of pharmaceutical applications. The validation guidelines are based on the analyte concentration/sample matrix combination to which the method will be applied. These guidelines include the selection(More)

The conservation and sustainable management of forests is a topic of significant interest for scholars and policy makers alike. Yet, this is a multifaceted issue that raises important questions related to different societal and scientific perspectives, while values of the multiple services that forest ecosystems deliver for society must also be taken into(More)
