Implications of forest ownership changes for forest and biodiversity governance and management.
- Book Chapter
Changing forest ownership in Europe has implications for forest management and biodiversity. Drawing on the results of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action FP1201 FACESMAP (Forest Land Ownership Change in Europe: Significance for Management and Policy) we present the cur-rent ownership structures in four European countries: Austria, Germany, Sweden, and Switzerland. These countries were selected because the proportion of forested land is at least one-third of the total land area and because they differ in the proportion of forest that is in private ownership. We describe recent changes in ownership structures and discuss the implications that these changes could have on forest governance and management with a special focus on biodiversity. Show more
