Special Issue "Biodiversity and Conservation—Selected Papers from FowiTa German Forest Sciences Conference (Sessions 6–9)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 July 2017)
The protection of forests and forest-related biodiversity is increasingly relevant. Biodiversity conservation hereby competes with increasing demands on European forests with respect to forest products and energy they do provide. The proposed session highlights state-of-the art questions on forest biodiversity and protected area management (PAM) in multi-functional forests, such as, for example:
- Positive or negative impacts of forest management practices on forest biodiversity
- Integrative or segregative approaches to enhance biodiversity conservation
- Adaptation of PAM categories to climate change
- Policy processes to influence forest-related biodiversity conservation.
Prof. Dr. Peter Spathelf
