Forest Ecosystem Resilience through Biodiversity – Nature’s Insurance Policy in a Changing World

July 3 @ 16:00 - 17:30

Forest ecosystems in many parts of Europe and worldwide are increasingly affected by a changing climate and increased disturbances. We can expect that certain tree species, but also entire forest ecosystems will come under threat or may no longer be able to cope with such rapidly changing conditions.

To improve the resilience of our forests, is it enough to rely on an existing set of tree species or to introduce those that we hope will be better adapted to future climatic conditions? Do we sufficiently consider forest ecosystem functioning as a whole, including biodiversity above and below ground? How can we respond to unforeseeable climatic phenomena in forest management?

With this webinar, we want to reflect upon how we can support forest ecosystems to better cope with current and future climate change impacts. After introducing how forest resilience can be defined and operationalized, we will investigate the role of biodiversity in forests, what potential trade-offs are, and what forest decision-makers and practitioners can do to increase forest ecosystems resilience.
