Effects of silvicultural regimes on dynamics of genetic and ecological diversity of european beech forests

Objective

Traditional forest management of European beech forests consists of large-scale felling with a few remaining trees to produce the next generation. This may have significantly disturbed the genetic and ecophysiological diversity. In general, high diversity is assumed to be very important for the adjustment to environmental changes. DynaBeech aims to assess the impacts of silvi-cultural regimes on genetic and ecological diversity. It will result in guidelines for both the optimisation of the adaptive potential and in situ conservation of beech forests through appropriate silvi-cultural regimes. These will be obtained through the integration of genetic and ecophysiological results by modelling and the development of alternative management scenarios. End-users involved in the project will evaluate the guidelines for economic and practical implications in their field of forest management.
