This chapter discusses challenges and possibilities involved in preserving biological diversity and the diversity of ecosystem services in the boreal zone and yet at the same time maintaining intensive timber extraction in boreal forests. Our focus is on Fennoscandian forests at the landscapes level, and we consider economic, social and ecological in the sustainability of forest management. We provide an outlook to boreal forest ecosystems and their history, and an overview of the forestry practices and policies that aim to ensure multi-functionality of Fennoscandian forests, i.e. diversity of efforts on sustaining biodiversity, timber production and other ecosystem services from forest landscapes. We review the current scientific understanding management effects on the structure and dynamics of the forest at different spatial, and the consequent repercussions on forest biodiversity and ecosystem services. Evidence suggests that many ecosystem services and biodiversity are in conflict with intensive timber production in boreal forests. We therefore present methods for assessing conflicts among alternative forest uses and for finding solutions for conflicts. We conclude the chapter by providing insights for future management aiming at sustainability from economic, ecological and social perspectives. ...

Conflicting objectives in production forests pose a challenge for forest management Pohjanmies, Tähti; Triviño, María; Le tortorec, Eric; Salminen, Hannu; Mönkkönen, Mikko (Elsevier BV, 2017)Conflicts among different ecosystem services have been shown to be common and potentially exacerbated by management interventions. In order to improve the sustainability of natural resource use, the occurrence of these ...
Trade-offs among intensive forestry, ecosystem services and biodiversity in boreal forests Pohjanmies, Tähti (University of Jyväskylä, 2018)Finnish forests are used extensively for timber production but are also providers of other ecosystem services and harbor unique biodiversity. The ecosystem services approach has so far been used marginally in the context ...
Continuous cover forestry is a cost-efficient tool to increase multifunctionality of boreal production forests in Fennoscandia Peura, Maiju; Burgas Riera, Daniel; Eyvindson, Kyle; Repo, Anna; Mönkkönen, Mikko (Elsevier, 2017)Earlier research has suggested that the diversification of silvicultural strategies is a cost-efficient tool to ensure multifunctionality in production forests. This study compared the effects of continuous cover forestry ...
Data from: Optimizing management to enhance multifunctionality in a boreal forest landscape Mönkkönen, Mikko; Le Tortorec, Eric; Mazziotta, Adriano; Juutinen, Artti; Triviño, María; Podkopaev, Dmitry; Pohjanmies, Tähti (University of Jyväskylä, 2016-08-22)1. The boreal biome, representing approximately one third of remaining global forests, provides a number of crucial ecosystem services. A particular challenge in forest ecosystems is to reconcile demand for increased timber ...
