Organisation Profile

The research of the Department of Forest Sciences concentrates on the understanding of the production chain of material and immaterial services and commodities produced by the forests.

Research focus areas 2010–2012

  • The interactions between climate change and forest and peatland ecosystems
  • Socio-economic changes and the global forest sector
  • New methods of managing forest information
  • The economic-ecological models of forest use and conservation (includes sub-item Forests as source of well-being)

One of the central resourse in research activities are SMEAR stations which are common with department's of Forest Sciences and Physics.
