Habitat Models of Focal Species Can Link Ecology and Decision-Making in Sustainable Forest Management

Asko Lõhmus, Raido Kont, Kadri Runnel, Maarja Vaikre, Liina Remm
2020 Forests  
We conclude that useful habitat models for sustainable forest management have to balance single-species realism with stakeholder expectations of meaningful targets and scales.  ...  A review of the literature shows that most spatial modeling of focal species focuses on vertebrates, lacks the aspect of aquatic and soil habitats, and has been slow in the uptake by actual management  ...  The Estonian Environmental Agency kindly provided access to the archives of the national forest registry for the modeling input.  ...
