News from Future Forests

Forests have many possible uses and hence conflicts. A priority is to find sustainable management models that can help to manage or resolve them. Only then can conflicts help to develop society.

Articles from Future Forests attracting attention

A recently published article about the resilience of global productions systems by Rist et al has been awarded an F1000-recommendation. The Faculty of 1000 is a panel of senior scientists and leading experts in biology and medicine. Recommendations are given regarding the most important current articles in their respective fields.

Recommending the paper, Prof Bennett says “This paper is important in that it expands resilience thinking to production systems and brings a new understanding to how people and ecosystems interact to produce multiple ecosystem services.”
