  4. 4. Impact of forest management on the diversity of wood decaying fungi : A comparison between two closely related forests in southern Sweden

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Author : Johanna Sollén Mattsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Biodiversity; Boreal forests; Forest management; Forestry; Natural forests; Wood decaying fungi;

    Abstract : Modern forestry practices have negative effects on many organisms because they change the forest’s disturbance dynamics, makes the forest’s structure less complex, and fragments old-growth forests. This study examined how commercial forestry practices affect the diversity of wood-decaying fungi, by comparing two closely related forests with different management in Östergötland, Sweden.
