Forest Reserves: Where nature has priority

Storys

  • RETURN TO THE WILD?
    What happens to a forest if it is no longer managed? Research in natural forest reserves provides some answers.
  • ONE-TWO
    Ulrich Mergner, Bavarian State Forestry Department: “I don’t think it makes much sense to stop using an ordinary forest just to make up the percentage.”
  • COLLABORATING ON RESEARCH IN VIRGIN FORESTS IS USEFUL FOR BOTH PARTNERS
    Thanks to the research on virgin forests in Ukraine and Bulgaria, we now understand better how Swiss forests develop.
  • IT DEPENDS ON THE QUALITY
    Despite more deadwood in Swiss forests, half of all wood-dwelling beetle species are threatened.
