    The graduate students that make up the Sustainable Forest Management Laboratory, which I lead, are interested in all aspects of sustainable forest management, but particularly the application of the principles of sustainable forest management to real world situations. We have been looking at how internationally agreed criteria and indicators of sustainable forest management can be.   The nation’s low Biodiversity score, which places it th among countries, reflects its fragmented ecosystems, degraded water resources, and .

    Although research has been done on the conservation quality of reserves compared to non-reserved forest (Esseen et al. ; Junninen et al. ), perhaps surprisingly, no studies in the Nordic countries have attempted to evaluate the importance of large protected areas as such. This makes it hard to assess their importance to plant and animal. Biodiversity indicators like the amount of dead wood In boreal forests in Nordic countries, forestry is changing structure of the forests in addition to a small constant annual change in land-use when forests are biodiversity. In forest ecosystems, trees are the primary producers and have a prevailing impact.

In all, % of the forest area is a conservative estimate of the RF area in the Nordic countries. Water Protection Function of RF Water transports a small proportion of the nutrient stocks present in the terrestrial part of the catchment to surface water, and this transport takes place through RF.

The Nordic countries have agreed on a common target to halt the decline in biodiversity by This report aims at evaluating the target by presenting indicators that can describe trends in biodiversity in the Nordic countries.

Fine-scale satellite data are used to quantify forest harvest rates in 26 European countries, finding an increase in harvested forest area of 49% and an increase in. To a great extent, it is the history of our natural environment that explains why Finland and the Nordic countries have become the great powers of forestry.

Finland’s bedrock is truly ancient, for the most part 1,–2, million years old. Th e history of organic nature, in contrast, is very short in the Nordic countries.

In a recent report from the EEA (Anon. ), several sets of indicators were proposed for European biodiversity aiming to evaluate the target. Concerning forest biodiversity three indicators have been suggested: •Ecosystem coverage, •Forest growing stocks •Dead wood.

10 Monitoring and Indicators of Forest Biodiversity in Europe – From Ideas to Operationality presented and discussed: the MCPFE process, the EEA core set of Biodiversity indicators, the CBD Core set of Biodiversity indicators.

Based on the Forest Principles, in European countries. 1. Introduction. Biodiversity has been shown to play a key role at all levels of the ecosystem service hierarchy (Mace et al., ).The diverse habitats and microhabitats contained in forest ecosystems hold the majority of the world’s terrestrial species (Ozanne et al., ).However, these biologically diverse systems are increasingly being threatened by deforestation and forest.

and assessments of biodiversity indicators, such as dead and decaying wood and key habitats (Tomppo et al. in the Nordic countries in the late s and early s, country book written in the Action (Tomppo et al. For example, in Central European countries, about one fifth of the total forested area is situated within 2 km from urban clusters (Gulsrud et al., ).

In highly forested Nordic countries, the relative share of urban forest is only about 1%, but still, the area of forests within 5 km from city edges in Sweden was estimated to be. Nordic indicators would be beneficial, enabling comparisons to be made within and between countries and regions as well as facilitating reporting under international policy-processes such as the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and EU.

Building on the assessment and monitoring of ecosystem services, it is. focuses on forest ecosystems in the Nordic countries, specifically on the impacts of forest management on provision of several ecosystem services and associated trade-offs.

The impacts were studied from two research domains: biophysical and socio-economic, as well as their contribution to the decision support. IUCN’s forest work tackles the role of trees and forests in building resilience to climate change in several ways: Combatting deforestation and forest degradation in areas of high biodiversity and cultural significance, such as primary forests and World Heritage sites.

This helps conserve the benefits that people and societies get from forests, including forest carbon stocks and livelihoods.

The Nordic countries have extensive forests with large and growing tree biomass that captures substantial amounts of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

Nordic forests are also important for biodiversity, with complex ecosystems providing habitats for about half of all known native species and threatened species in Finland, Norway, and Sweden.This book presents the results of Working Group 3 of COST Action E43 in the development of harmonization techniques for common reporting of estimates of forest biodiversity indicators using NFI data.

Harmonization tests were carried out on a large common data base containing raw NFI data from 13 European countries and the USA.Abstract. Inworld leaders made a commitment through the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), to achieve a significant reduction in the rate of biodiversity loss by
