Resistance and resilience of mixed forests


  1. Compare pure vs. mixed forest stands vulnerability to multiple hazards and their combinations, through quantitative estimates of resistance and resilience
  2. Decipher the stochastic and ecological processes underlying resistance and resilience of mixed forests, more particularly those involving tree-tree interactions
  3. Establish the functional links through statistical relationships between forest stand features (composition, structure and dynamics) and vulnerability

Task 2.1 Forest damage data compilation

Task 2.2 Wood core analysis. Data and results will be used in WP3 and WP4.

Task 2.3. Identification of pattern and drivers of resistance

Task 2.4 Synthesis of underlying mechanisms linking stand features to vulnerability- To be transferred to WP3
