Adaptive risk management in oak and pine forests vulnerable to drought via integrative evaluation and flexible damage thresholds


Duration: 01.07.2019-30.06.2022


Client: ARTEMIS is funded by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture


Contact person: Lara Lahaye



The project’s aim to establish test cases to show how tailored and differentiated solutions for sustainable forest protection can be found in times of climate change. A central aim is to establish flexible thresholds for "acceptable" damages that reflect the immense variety of forest ecosystem functions and services. Their definition will be supported by wide-ranging consequence analyses that are capable of incorporating variable societal and political context conditions.
