New book: How to balance forestry and biodiversity conservation. A view across Europe

Thursday, March 18, 2021

A new book was published where Companhia das Lezírias is presented as a case study. This publication strives to show the challenges of forest managers to fulfil the societal demands for forests and especially to integrate the promotion of biodiversity. 44 authors from science, policy, and practice describe in a first section consisting of 12 chapters the driving factors of forest management as national laws and legacies, ownership structures, forest history, and socio-structural conditions. In a second section, 113 authors from forest managers present 32 case examples from 19 European countries that demonstrate the different approaches to integrate the locally requested ecosystem services.
