Abstract

Climate change mitigation aims to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Forest mitigates climate change by accumulating atmospheric carbon to biomass. This biomass can be used to various products which also act as a carbon sink. Carbon sequestration is the opposite of carbon emission, but not...

Abstract

Forests play a vital role in mitigating climate change, as they sequester and store large quantities of carbon. This dissertation examines how carbon storage may be increased by changing forest management at the stand level. To extend the economics of forest carbon storage beyond single-species...

Abstract

This dissertation examines the economics of continuous cover forestry. The analysis is based on an economic description of continuous cover forestry using empirically estimated growth functions, with both size-structured and individual tree models. The optimization problem is solved in its general...

Abstract

This study traces the emergence and development of the fundamental ideas and principles in forest and renewable natural resource economics further back in history than has been done previously. Moreover, it provides an analytical and historical framework allowing one to evaluate this disciplinary...

Abstract

This dissertation explores the governance, local impacts and costs of community-owned renewable energy (CRE). The objective is to understand if and in what context collective local ownership models represent a feasible and effective means to operationalising a more 'sustainable development' in the...

Abstract

This dissertation develops a framework to examine socially optimal forest management when nutrient and sediment loads from forestry are considered as a negative externality. The Faustmann rotation model is extended to include the runoff function to describe the water quality impacts of nutrient and ...

Abstract

This dissertation aims to develop the economics of even-aged Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) management. In our economic-ecological model, a detailed process-based forest growth model is connected to an economic description of stand management. The process-based growth model is able to describe ...

Abstract

The performance of a forest inventory is typically evaluated using error indices, such as root mean square error (RMSE) and the difference between means of observed and predicted attributes (MD). However, error indices or errors as such, do not fully reveal the practical usefulness of forest...

Abstract

Human land use affects the climate through various channels. This thesis focuses on the optimal (i.e. welfare-maximizing) regulation of land use sector climate impacts using market-based instruments, such as taxes and subsidies. The thesis consists of four articles and a summary chapter. Each...

Abstract

This study focuses on the system of global forest governance and diplomacy, working on the premise that the processes used to negotiate global agreements is as important as the technical capabilities and the scientific understanding that the negotiators bring to the bargaining table. The study...
