Forests cover about a third of the European land area and provide a multitude of ecosystem services. They are subject to constant change and increasing demands with respect to the ecosystem services they provide. As well as provision of timber, non-timber forest goods (e.g. berries and mushrooms), clean water, carbon sequestration, and protection against natural disasters, there is increasing emphasis being placed on conservation and promotion of biodiversity within forests. However, the state of biodiversity in European forests varies widely. This book strives to show the challenges that forest managers are faced with to fulfil the societal demands with regard to forests, and especially to integrate the promotion of biodiversity to forest management.

The protection of forests and forest-related biodiversity has received increasing attention both at the national and international levels. At the same time, increasing demands are being made on European forests with respect to the products and energy they can and do provide on a renewable, climate-friendly, and domestic basis. This book presents the results of EFI’s research project EFICENT, initiated by the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) in 2011. Its task was to look into these questions on a Central European scale, i.e. beyond national borders, and provide answers that are helpful for policy and practice.
The Integrate Network recently published an illustrative booklet supported by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture with information on forests, forest management and biodiversity conservation in different member countries, including major challenges for biodiversity and potential solutions, success stories, relevant initiatives and an outlook for the future.
The Integrate Network flyer includes the Integrate triangle that associates the three fundamental pillars on which we base our collaborative work between research, practice, and policy-making.
The documentary “Wise use of our forest: the integrative approach” is available in different languages.
