Treść
Forests are important habitats for much of Europe’s biodiversity and forest management is crucial for its preservation. Many benefits from our forests rely on the existing biodiversity in complex ways, and the citizens of Europe care about the protection of diversity as such. The number of endangered species or the area of an endangered habitat protected is often used as a measure for biodiversity services resulting from management measures. The degree of naturalness and natural processes in a forest area is another option sometimes used to capture the bundle of services and functions related to management measures. The best way to quantify biodiversity impacts depends on the kind of values targeted. Improvements in biodiversity as a result of management often appear only after a long time horizon.
