Im Rahmen von ConFoBi sind wir an Ihrem Wissen interessiert.
Sie besitzen, bewirtschaften oder arbeiten im Wald?
Sie forschen oder arbeiten in der Forstwirtschaft oder im Naturschutz?
Dann freuen wir uns über Ihre Teilnahme an der Umfrage Strukturreichtum im Wirtschaftswald
Falls Sie Fragen haben, melden Sie sich gerne bei uns:
English explanation: Within the frame of ConFoBi we conduct an online survey on structural richness in forests managed for timber production. In case the requirements listed above fit to you, we would be delighted if you participate.
Thomas Asbeck and colleagues set out to predict tree microhabitats in our study system: Predicting abundance and diversity of tree-related microhabitats in Central European montane forests from common forest attributes, published in Forest Ecology and Management.
Andrey L. D. Augustynczik is currently our most productive author. Together with various colleagues he published ConFoBi paper number five, six and seven. In paper number five he uses Bayesian inference to estimate uncertainty in models where productivity of European beech is calculated under climate change: Productivity of Fagus sylvatica under climate change – A Bayesian analysis of risk and uncertainty using the model 3-PG, it appeared in the journal Forest Ecology and Management.
Paper number six is a collaboration with Thomas Asbeck and Marco Basile and their sub projects to call for a diversified forest management which will increase tree microhabitats and under climate change will maintain bird biodiversity, published in the journal Science of the Total Environment: Diversification of forest management regimes secures tree microhabitats and bird abundance under climate change.
Andrey’s seventh ConFoBi paper came out in Scientific Reports and proposes a novel approach for conservation, namely to include multiple sources of uncertainty in management plans: Multiple uncertainties require a change of conservation practices for saproxylic beetles in managed temperate forest
Bettina Joa and colleagues reviewed the literature on local knowledge in the ConFoBi setting: The unknown known – A review of local ecological knowledge in relation to forest biodiversity conservation in the journal Land Use Policy.
Last week the meeting of the European chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology took place in Jyväslylä in Finland. Gernot and Johannes organised a session on the core topic of ConFoBi and eight talks were presented therein. Nice talks and a well attended session with nice music intervals 😉

Andrey L. D. Augustynczik and colleagues recently published an article entitled “Conservation Costs of Retention Forestry and Optimal Habitat Network Selection in Southwestern Germany” in the journal “Ecological Economics”.
In science there is never only one way how to investigate similar research questions. We are excited to meet our colleagues from the project L57 “Managing species richness in integrative forestry from the TU Munich, Germany for an informal exchange on similarities and possible joint collaborations.
