Northern coniferous forests and the effects of forestry on biodiversity of species

  • Ylisirniö, Anna (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


The project investigates the structure and dynamics of pristine northern coniferous forests and the effects of forestry on species, especially on the saproxylics, which are species depending on dead and dying trees. We aim at revealing what kind of forest structures are important for biodiversity, how different forest management methods influence diversity of different species groups, and what are the effects of new forest management methods (e.g., woodland key habitats and retention trees) on species diversity.

The project is conducted in cooperation with the Universities of Jyväskylä and Eastern Finland and the Natural Resources Institute Finland.
