The research at the Chair of Silviculture deals with questions regarding the manipulation of forest ecosystems to reach economic, ecological, and social management goals. The specific foci of research are on structure and dynamics of forests, carbon and nutrient cycles, ecological interactions in forest ecosystems as well as the adaptation of forests to global change. In addition, the consequences of forest management on ecosystem functions and processes are analysed.
