Chamois, ibex and red deer are moving to higher ground

Climate change has prompted three of the most common ungulate species in the Alps - chamois, ibex and red deer - to move to higher elevations in the late summer and autumn. The tendency of roe deer to move to higher ground was weaker.

The forest in Bavaria as a carbon store

Forests make an important contribution towards climate protection by actively removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The carbon stocks in Bavarian forests are relatively high. But how high, exactly?

Sycamore pastures, an El Dorado for mosses and lichens

Pastures with sycamore trees are biodiversity hotspots. These traditionally cultivated landscapes are home to over 500 species of mosses and lichens. Therefore sycamore pasture conservation is needed.

Plant diversity protects against landslides

Landslides repeatedly cause major damage in Switzerland. A report describes how soil stability can be improved long-term with relatively little input. Modified forest management practices and diverse vegetation can play an especially significant and cost-effective role.

Progressive mortality of Fraxinus species in Austria caused by Ash-dieback, in the context of Europe

Large parts of Europe have been affected by Ash dieback which resulted in massive tree mortality. So what can be learned from the prevention strategies in the countries where this disease has long been ravaging countless forests?

The production capital forest soil

The forest soil is the base capital for all forms of forestry. The protection of the soil and the preservation of its production capability is an essential pillar of sustainable forest management.

Bark beetles - a topical issue

The bark beetles are often a problem for spruce trees. To counteract the problem effectively, it is crucial that forest owners and forest managers are well-informed on the issue. You will find answers to the FAQ here.

Jewel beetles - beneficiaries of dry summers

Jewel beetles, also known as metallic wood-boring beetles, profit in two ways from a dry summer: firstly because the warm summer accelerates their development, and secondly because the forest trees are weakened by the drought.

The bark of Norway spruce and Silver fir – thinner than expected

Bark thickness is a measurement for assessing economic value of roundwood and for estimating wood and bark biomass. The currently applied bark deduction values in Germany are based on measurements in the 1970s. The objectives were to test their suitability for different bucking patterns and stem segments.

Scientific Research as a Basis for Red Deer Management Concepts

Red deer are the biggest free roaming herbivores in Germany. Thus, it is essential to manage such populations on a large scale. However, managing red deer is difficult due to the various types of forest ownerships, small scale hunting grounds, and inconsistent handling of game winter feeding sites.
