Stand dynamics and silviculture

Dr. Martina Hobi (head)

We study stand dynamics and how they can be influenced by man. We thereby focus
on the following topics:

Bestandesdynamik und Waldbau

We maintain and manage a net of long-term permanent plots and use the data in simulation models of forest dynamics. Our research contributes to an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable forest management.
