Nature based management of beech in europe a multifunctional approach to forestry

Objective

The objective of Nat-Man is to help resolve the challenge of sustainable forest management (SFM). The object of the project is European beech forest, representing a large resource for timber production, biodiversity conservation and life quality. Improved beech management will be a major contribution to the multifunctional utilisation of European forest resources (Key Action 5.3). The project delivers scientifically founded policy recommendations and management guidelines for SFM, based on the scientific axiom that nature-based management is a powerful tool in achieving SFM. The scientific work behind these deliverables range from natural forests as a reference point, over a detailed scientific comparison a natural and managed forest, through biological and economical modelling. A multidisciplinary team of scientists and end-users from eastern and western Europe will achieve the objectives of the Nat-Man project.
