Our forests and woods can contribute so much to our nation. We deliver practical programmes to make sure that, as communities and individuals, we can get the most from them. Our responsibilities span research, commercial timber production, sustainability programmes and policy, as well as learning and leisure. Our goal is always to ensure that, at a practical level, Britain can use its forests to contribute positively to as many of the nation's needs as we can while sustaining this great resource for the future. ...

Wald-online bündelt allgemeine Informationen über den Wald und leitet zu den Internetforstverwaltungen in Deutschland. Auf der Startseite gibt es eine integrierte Katalog-Suchmaschine der Zentralstelle für Agrardokumentation und -information (ZADI), die die Suche nach weiteren Web-Sites zum Wald und zur Forstwirtschaft ermöglicht. In einer Link-Liste sind alle fachlich und organisatorisch den Wald und die Forstwirtschaft betreffenden Institutionen zusammengestellt, wobei es hauptsächlich um forstliche Forschung, Umweltpädagogik und forstliche Verbände geht. Unter der Rubrik Wald online gibt es vor allem Informationen zu deutschen Wäldern, deren Funktion und Geschichte. Unter der Rubrik "über Treffpunkt Wald" gibt es eine Deutschlandkarte, die es ermöglicht, nach Veranstaltungen in den einzelnen Bundesländern zu suchen. ... [Information des Anbieters, verändert]

The Forest Plots Database was designed to provide a permanent repository for forest inventory data. The objectives of the database are: to enable network participants to access and manage their data online in a secure environment; to integrate and standardize forest plot data, to promote data sharing among the scientific community; and, to provide access to publicly available forest inventory data. The database is a web-accessible secure repository, collected as part of the RAINFOR, AFRITRON and TROBIT networks. If you are interested in becoming a user and having access to publicly available plots of the Forest Plots Database please email the admin. ... [Information of the supplier, modified]

The Forest Ecosystems Research Center (Forschungszentrum Waldökosysteme or FZW) is part of the Forest Faculty of the University of Göttingen and carries out research into structural dynamics and element recycling processes in sylvan ecosystems as well as into the adaptability of forests in the face of environmental change. This includes study of the interaction between the ecosystems and their environment and the new types of forest damage. Last not least, these investigations also lead to an appraisal of commercial feasibility. The aim is to find out under which conditions sustainable forest management is possible. These conditions include natural factors such as climate and soil development as well as human factors such as the use of biomass and atmospheric pollution. Thus the Research Center studies the effects of atmospheric element deposition and forest management on sylvan ecosystems as well as the effects element outflow has on the environment of these ecosystems. An analysis of cause and effect is a condition for establishing critical loads and taking suitable measures for the stabilisation of sylvan ecosystems. Only in this way can detrimental environmental effects - such as on ground water - be avoided and sustainable forest management implemented. The Forest Ecosystems Research Center co-ordinates and integrates a number of different projects on this subject and supports close co-operation with institutions not belonging to the University. Activities include the organisation of conferences and the establishment of contacts with institutes and scientists. ... [Information of the supplier]
Als Teil der Webpräsenz der Bayerischen Forstverwaltung bietet dieses Angebot Informationen zu einigen aktuellen waldökologischen Themen. Es werden Schadorganismen unter Aspekten des Waldschutzes behandelt; dabei wird jeweils auch ihre Biologie angesprochen. Themen sind beispielweise: Rosskastanienminiermotte (Aesculus hippocastanum, Cameraria ohridella), Eichenprozessionsspinner (Quercus spp., Thaumetopoea processionea), oder Phytophthora-Wurzelhalsfäule der Erle ("Erlensterben", Alnus glutinosa). ...
