Retention Forestry to Maintain Multifunctional Forests: A World Perspective
The majority of the world's forests are used for multiple purposes, which often include the potentially conflicting goals of timber production and biodiversity conservation. A scientificallyExpand

Saproxylic beetles in managed and seminatural Scots pine forests: quality of dead wood matters
Habitats of saproxylic species (species that are dependent on decaying wood) have been greatly changed during the last few decades. Due to intensive forest management, volume of dead wood hasExpand

Long-term persistence of aspen – a key host for many threatened species – is endangered in old-growth conservation areas in Finland
Abstract Large, dead and dying European aspens (Populus tremula L.) host many threatened species in Fennoscandian boreal forests. Large aspen trees have mostly disappeared and are being harvestedExpand

Forest Fragmentation in Fennoscandia: Linking Habitat Requirements of Wood-associated Threatened Species to Landscape and Habitat Changes
Fragmentation may occur simultaneously in different spatial and temporal scales. The ecological importance of fragmentation depends both on the scale of fragmentation and on the habitat requirementsExpand

A major shift to the retention approach for forestry can help resolve some global forest sustainability issues
Approximately 85% of the global forest estate is neither formally protected nor in areas dedicated to intensive wood production (e.g., plantations). Given the spatial extent of unprotected forests,Expand

Short-term effects of controlled burning and green-tree retention on beetle (Coleoptera) assemblages in managed boreal forests
Abstract Timber harvesting, and especially clear-cutting followed by soil scarification, has altered boreal forest ecosystems in important ways. For example, loss of decaying wood in many parts ofExpand

Tree retention as a conservation measure in clear-cut forests of northern Europe: a review of ecological consequences
Abstract Since the mid-1990s, it has been common practice to leave trees for biodiversity purposes when clear-cutting in Finland, Norway and Sweden, and regulations for such tree retention are todayExpand

Co-variation and indicators of species diversity: Can richness of forest-dwelling species be predicted in northern boreal forests?
Abstract Design and establishment of ecologically good networks of conservation areas often requires quick assessments of their biodiversity. Reliable indicators would be useful when doing suchExpand

Habitat suitability models of saproxylic red-listed boreal forest species in long-term matrix management: Cost-effective measures for multi-species conservation
Abstract Understanding of how a large landscape or network of conservation areas and habitats of red-listed species change in time is an important topic when addressing the temporal interplay betweenExpand

Assemblages of wood‐inhabiting fungi along the gradients of succession and naturalness in boreal pine‐dominated forests in Fennoscandia
In boreal forests, the level of naturalness and the stage of succession explain most of the variation in forest structure within a particular forest type. Thus, these two factors should also have aExpand
