AbstractFull Text

In a forestry context, modelling stand development over time relies on estimates of different stand characteristics obtained from equations which usually constitute a multivariate system. In this study we have developed a stand growth model for even-aged stands of Black pine (Pinus nigra Arn.) in...

AbstractFull Text

Around one million hectares have been afforested between 1994 and 1999 (ECC, 2004) due to European agro-environment policies (Regulation 2080/92) in Europe. Tree understory competition is one of the most important aspects that control tree growth after reforestation, which could be modified by the...

AbstractFull Text

Land use change, such as afforestation, has been one of the most important goals achieved in the last years at a European level. Promotion of afforestation and agroforestry systems can later affect biodiversity in either a positive or negative way. The objective of this work is to evaluate the...
