On March 22-23, 2018 we held a workshop focused on modeling natural disturbances in the Western Carpathian mountains
Harnessing landscape heterogeneity can help address changing disturbance regimes in management, finds a recent study published in the Journal of Environmental Management.
A recent study published in Global Change Biology for the first time documented continental-scale synchronization of forest disturbances in Europe.
The project was presented at the FWF Roadshow at the Vienna University of Economics and Business on December 12, 2017.
Climate change simultaneously alters tree species composition and disturbance regimes. How these changes affect the climate regulation function of forests was quantified by a recent study published in Ecological Monographs.
A global meta-analysis assessed how salvage logging after disturbance influences 24 species groups of eight different taxonomic groups. The results were published in the Journal of Applied Ecology.
Landsat time series allow a fine-grained analysis of recent forest disturbance dynamics, highlighting differences between unmanaged and managed forest ecosystems.
A comprehensive synthesis, recently published in Nature Climate Change, suggests that climate change alters forest disturbance regimes at the global scale.
In the 2017 field season our goal is to learn about forest recovery and resilience by studying the forests of the only wilderness area (IUCN cat. I) in Austria.
