Climate change and forest adaptation

Project

 (c) Thünen-Institut für Waldökosysteme

Ongoing climate change is on a of the big challenges for the maintainance of productive forests. Climatic exterme events like drought, heat waves, storms and the acompanying occurrence of pathogens require a monitoring of forest development and an adaptation of forest and forest management.

Background and Objective

The studies are aimed at analysing and evaluating the most important impacts of climate change on forests. Based on the results, concepts for forest adaptation and adaptive forest management (AFM) shall be developed and brought to application.

Approach

Data of the forest monitoring and additional studies will be used to identify the most importat drivers for forest vitality and productivity change. With international networking we will establish novel concepts and measures for an adaptive forest management (AFM) including assisted migration and varied silvicultural treatments of forest stands.

Preliminary Results

First approaches for an adaptive forest management (AFM) has been allready developed and published. In particular, the use of active and passive elements of adaptive management are intensively discussed.
