Forests worldwide are under increasing pressure to provide multiple products, ecosystem services, and to play a key role for bio-based economy.
SLU is currently ranked as number one in forestry science. Here you can learn about history, ecology, and management of the world’s largest forest biome, which provide essential raw materials and services worldwide.
Forests serve as a home for a great diversity of organisms and cultural heritage and play vital roles in global water, carbon, and nutrient cycles. At the same time they are increasingly impacted by intensification of land use and interacting global changes such as climate change, atmospheric deposition, invasive species, and natural disturbance like wildfires.
The resulting changes in the ecosystem properties may in turn feedback to global climate, and impact upon the provision of forest products and services. Maintaining functioning forests, and the ecosystem services that they provide, will require new management strategies and the ability to deal with conflicting interests.
