Description Silvicultural systems FB2

In Europe complete regimes for regenerating, tending, and harvesting forests called 'silvicultural systems' have been successfully developed. Some are now also being used in tropical and sub-tropical forestry.

This book describes the theoretical basis and practical application of 20 silvicultural systems. Contents.adaptive systems may provide a conceptual framework that can be useful for silviculture, even though much work still must be done to fully explore the implications of such a new framework for silvicultural decisionmaking.

Keywords: silviculture, global change, climate change, invasive species, resilience, adaptability, complex adaptive systems.Selection systems produce forests of several to many age classes and are commonly referred to as uneven-aged management.

However, in reality, the entire silvicultural system may be more complicated and involve a number of silvicultural treatments such as site preparation, weeding and cleaning, pre-commercial thinning, commercial thinning.
