Nature protection in state-owned forests: concepts, implementation and perspectives

Published on

Although nature protection has recently gained significant importance in German state-owned forests, there is still a controversy between forest management and nature conservationists about the implications of these changes. The present study, published in German language by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, explores relevant concepts in German regional forestry enterprises as well as implementations of nature protection policies given the fact that the state forest in Germany serves public service obligations. The study was edited by Georg Winkel (EFI) and Hermann Spellmann.
