Methodological Issues Regarding the Improvement of Sustainable Forest Management Tools
AbstractSustainable management of forest ecosystems should ensure the synergy of the economic, environmental and social functions. Maintenance and extension of forest ecosystems represent a major objective of the general strategy of environmental protection, particularly relevant in 2011, the year declared by the United Nations as the International Year of Forests. In this context, this paper briefly presents a compact and comprehensive overview of status and trends, as well as challenges and opportunities for forests, forest policy and forest management in Europe
