Short description

FutureForCoppiceS verticaleThe project aims at demonstrating, by real datasets collected from a long-term experimental plots network, how different management approaches have actually favoured or constrained the overall and the different aspects of sustainability of coppice forests.
Given the concurrent, substantial changes of the forest growth environment (e.g. increased concentration of greenhouse gases, rising temperature, reduced precipitation and increased seasonal variability) occurring since the last decades, the results will improve the knowledge basis for SFM in the in view of the forecasted changes in key environmental drivers and pressures.
