The aim of this book is to improve the understanding of forest
dynamics and the sustainable management of forest ecosystems. How
do tree crowns, trees or entire forest stands respond to thinning
in the long term? What effect do tree species mixtures and
multi-layering have on the productivity and stability of trees,
stands or forest enterprises? How do tree and stand growth respond
to stress factors such as climate change or air pollution?
Furthermore, in the event that one has acquired knowledge about the
effects of thinning, mixture and stress, how can one make that
knowledge applicable to decision-making in forestry practice? The
experimental designs, analytical methods, general relationships and
models for answering questions of this kind are the focus of this
book. Given the structures dealt with, which range from plant
organs to the tree, stand and enterprise levels, and the processes
analysed in a time frame of days or months to decades or even
centuries, this book is directed at all readers interested in
trees, forest stands and forest ecosystems. This work has been
compiled for students, scientists, lecturers, forest planners,
forest managers, and consultants.
