To conserve biodiversity of boreal forests, many management and restoration actions have been undertaken during the last decades. However, research based knowledge about the impacts of the currently used practices are yet largely unavailable. Here we introduce two large scale experiments on the impacts of forest management and restoration on biodiversity of boreal forests. In the first experiment we concentrate on the effects of prescribed burning on species richness of two species groups, which are known to be largely dependent on the amount and quality of decaying wood: saproxylic beetles and polypore fungi. In the second experiment, we study the immediate surroundings of small forest brooks, which are defined as valuable habitats in the Finnish Forest Act. Our aim is to determine the effect of silvicultural practices conducted at the valuable habitats or in the vicinity of them on long term persistence of the special characteristics of these habitats. Our preliminary results indicate that preserving the characteristic features of valuable brook habitats will help to preserve the overall species richness of boreal forests. ...

The effect of different forest management regimes on the ecosystem services and biodiversity of Finnish boreal forests Salokannas, Jenni (2019)Talousmetsien hoito ja tasaikäisrakenteinen metsänkasvatus ovat muuttaneet metsien rakennetta, ja vähentäneet monien metsälajien elinympäristöjen määrää. Tämä yhdessä Suomen kasvaneen hakkuutavoitteen kanssa vaikuttaa ...
What are the effects of even-aged and uneven-aged forest management on boreal forest biodiversity in Fennoscandia and European Russia? : A systematic review protocol Savilaakso, Sini; Häkkilä, Matti; Johansson, Anna; Uusitalo, Anne; Sandgren, Terhi; Mönkkönen, Mikko; Puttonen, Pasi (BioMed Central Ltd., 2019)Background: Biodiversity is vital for human well-being, but is threatened by human actions world-wide. In the boreal zone, harvesting and management of forests on an industrial scale is the most important factor driving ...
What are the effects of even-aged and uneven-aged forest management on boreal forest biodiversity in Fennoscandia and European Russia? A systematic review Savilaakso, Sini; Johansson, Anna; Häkkilä, Matti; Uusitalo, Anne; Sandgren, Terhi; Mönkkönen, Mikko; Puttonen, Pasi (BioMed Central, 2021)Background Forest harvesting changes forest habitat and impacts forest dependent species. Uneven-aged management is often considered better for biodiversity than even-aged management, but there is an ongoing discourse ...
Biodiversity effects of constructed and restored wetlands – an ecological and socioeconomical approach Helle, Ilona; Halme, Panu; Komonen, Atte; Paloniemi, Riikka (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)Wetlands are highly productive ecosystems with characteristics of both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. They have special biota adapted to inundation by water. Between 1970 and 2008, natural wetlands declined on average ...
