Background Białowieża forest (Puszcza Białowieska) is the last natural forest in Central Europe. Around half of its area is currently protected and excluded from direct human influence. No forest management is carried out in stands of trees older than 100 years. Therefore, the Białowieża forest is a unique nature site, because it is subject to only m ...

The important climatic, environmental, socio-economic and land-use changes taking place at global, regional and local levels, pose new challenges for meeting the multifunctional demands on European forest resources, and for their sustainable management. In the European Union the formulation of forest policies is in the competence of the Member States and although the Treaties of the EU make no pro ...

"The objective of BIOCOMES is to develop 11 new biological control agents (BCAs) for key markets in European agriculture and forestry. BCAs were identified through market analysis by six manufactures of biological control products. BCAs will primarily be for use in open field crops of vegetables (3), of which 2 are also for use in protected crops, arable crops (3), fruit crops (3), and three diffe ...

Designing Trees for the future (TREES4FUTURE)

Start date: Nov 1, 2011, End date: Apr 30, 2016,

TREES4FUTURE will make a significant contribution to helping the European forestry sector respond, in a sustainable manner, to increasing demands for wood products and services (among which preservation of forest biodiversity) in a context of changing climatic conditions. To do so TREES4FUTURE will integrate for the first time major, yet rarely interacting forestry communities (and their resources ...

"European forests are under unprecedented threat from the combined forces of climate change and large increases in the numbers of alien invasive pests and pathogens resulting from changes in patterns of global trade. Interactions between climate change, including likely changes in both mean temperatures and precipitation, will have serious impacts on the susceptibility of forest ecosystems to dama ...

"Biodiversity And Climate Change, A Risk Analysis" (BACCARA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2009, End date: Dec 31, 2012,

"1. The effect of climate change on forest biodiversity will be evaluated through better understanding of the ecological processes that shape species composition and are particularly sensitive to climate conditions. Forest species composition will correspond to the assemblage of tree species and both symbiotic and antagonistic species that can drive tree species composition. Climate conditions wil ...

Flexible Wood Supply Chain (FlexWood)

Start date: Nov 1, 2009, End date: Oct 31, 2012,

A number of studies indicate that the market demand for wood will lead to strong competition between the different wood industry branches. This is especially true in view of a globalised wood market, in which production is characterised by fast structural changes and concentration processes. Competition between different wood industries and the development towards large production units, as well a ...

"Europe has suffered in the last years a large number of forest fires that has caused enormous losses in terms of human life and environmental damage. During 2007, more than 3376 square kilometres of forest and agricultural fields disappeared in smoke, causing the loss of more than 64 lives and more than 1.6bn Euros [1].These figures meant an increase of a 50% in southern European countries such a ...
