Centre of Advanced Research on Environmental Services from Nordic Forest Ecosystems (CAR-ES) (2011-2015)

The CAR-ES network aims at providing scientific knowledge on the impacts of forest management on major environmental services for decision making with in the forestry sector. The main environmental services addressed are:
- Carbon sequestration
- Water quality
