SUMFOREST is online

SNS is a partner in the ERA-NET ‘SUMFOREST’ that started in January 2014. SUMFOREST stands for ‘SUstainable forest management; Multifunctional Forestry, European Forest Policy’. European forests consist of a wide tree species and ecosystem diversity with different goods and services. Thus, they are affected differently by climate and land-use changes. The current forest policy environment in the European Union and the formulation of forest policies is fragmented, complex and sometimes contradictory.

The aim of SUMFOREST is to reinforce scientific cooperation on European forests, build new cooperation arrangements with EU neighbourhood regions, and thereby aiming at a reduced fragmentation of forest management and multifunctional forestry.

The main task of SNS in this ERA-net is the SUMFOREST website that was published now. Welcome and have a look at: www.sumforest.org

‘Quantifying N, P and C losses to waters from Fennoscandic/Baltic forests’

The SNS-supported network ‘Leaching of carbon, nitrogen and phosporus from forest land in the Nordic and Baltic countries’ has published a new research and policy brief: 

Quantifying N, P and C losses to waters from Fennoscandic/Baltic forests and the effect of various forestry operations (pdf). The overall goal of this project is to build a meta-database which identifies and documents forest research sites in Fennoscandia and the Baltic states where water chemistry data have been measured. The meta-database locates and catalogues studies where nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) have been measured in soil and stream water from intact and harvested forests.
