(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-15)
      In the Baltic States region, anthropogenic disturbances at different temporal and spatial scales mostly determine dynamics and development phases of forest ecosystems. We reviewed the state and condition of hemiboreal ...
    • Mixing effects on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) productivity along a climatic gradient across Europe 

      Ruiz-Peinado, Ricardo; Pretzsch, Hans; Löf, Magnus; Heym, Michael; Bielak, Kamil; Aldea, Jorge; Barbeito, Ignacio; Brazaitis, Gediminas; Drössler, Lars; Godvod, Kšištof; Granhus, Aksel; Holm, Stig-Olof; Jansons, Aris; Makrickienė, Ekaterina; Metslaid, Marek; Metslaid, Sandra; Nothdurft, Arne; Reventlow, Ditlev Otto Juel; Sitko, Roman; Stankevičienė, Gintarė; del Río, Miren (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-12-15)
      Mixed-species stands have been found to be more productive than would be expected from the performance of their component species in monocultures due to facilitation and complementarity between species, although these ...
    • Patterns of Carbon Sequestration in a Young Forest Ecosystem after Clear-Cutting 

      Rebane, Sille; Jõgiste, Kalev; Kiviste, Andres; Stanturf, John A.; Metslaid, Marek (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-01-21)
      A large area of Estonian hemiboreal forest is recovering from clear-cut harvesting and changing carbon (C) balance of the stands. However, there is a lack of information about C- source/sink relationships during recovery ...
    • Species stratification and weather conditions drive tree growth in Scots pine and Norway spruce mixed stands along Europe 

      Aldea, Jorge; Ruiz-Peinado, Ricardo; del Río, Miren; Pretzsch, Hans; Heym, Michael; Brazaitis, Gediminas; Jansons, Aris; Metslaid, Marek; Barbeito, Ignacio; Bielak, Kamil; Granhus, Aksel; Holm, Stig-Olof; Nothdurft, Arne; Sitko, Roman; Löf, Magnus (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-11-01)
      Mixed forests are suggested as a strategic adaptation of forest management to climate change. Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) are tree species of high economic and ecological ...
