    Carbon forestry is surprising

    Forestry offers possibilities to sequestrate carbon in living biomass, deadwood and forest soil, as well as in products prepared of wood. In addition, the use of wood may reduce carbon emissions from fossil fu...

    Management breaks the natural productivity-biodiversity relationship in forests and grassland: an opinion

    Two approaches mark the difference between the “ecological” and “agricultural” view of the biodiversity/growth relation. In ecology the trend is averaged by taking monocultures of all species as baseline to ev...
