The aims of this research were twofold: to develop an efficient method for the quantification of large spruce snags (standing dying and dead trees), and to establish snag target values for sustainable forest management. We answer the two basic questions: how much dead wood is currently available in managed forests? And how much dead wood is enough for biodiversity conservation? It is widely accepted that modern forest management has to be sustainable. One generally recognised criterion of…

Until recently, deadwood was perceived as a negative element of forest ecosystems, that indicates “mismanagement, negligence, and wastefulness” of the applied forest management (Stachura et al.,

Analyzing deadwood volume of Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) in relation to stand and site parameters: a case study in Köprülü Canyon National Park

The results obtained from Calabrian pine (P. brutia Ten.) can be used as reference values for managed forests and can contribute to set the rules in deciding the appropriate level of DW in particularly biodiversity integrated forest management planning.

Assessment of Biodiversity for Improved Forest Planning

Improvements in the understanding of issues and processes in global forest biodiversity and its conservation will be derived from global assessment exercises like the Forest Resources Assessment of the FAO, increasing global compatibility of criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management, forest certification processes, and national reporting exercises, e.g. for the Convention on Biological Diversity.
