    There have been efforts at adapting forest management approaches to emulate natural disturbance effects, as this is expected to maintain ecosystem resilience. In many instances, this involves resorting to partial cutting strategies that are likely to increase windthrow losses. emulate forest conditions produced by natural disturbance regimes. Finally we eval-uate the strengths and weaknesses of using disturbance-based management in each of these forest types and identify lessons that may be useful for forest managers in other regions of the world.

Disturbance-Based Forest Management Concepts Managing the Cited by:   ENDR represents “management strategies and practices, at appropriate spatial and temporal scales, with the goal of producing forest ecosystems structurally and functionally similar to the ecosystems that would result from natural disturbances” (Perera and Buse,p.

ENDR is one of several similar conceptualizations (e.g Cited by: Silvicultural practices that emulate natural disturbances practices that emulate natural disturbances are proposed with examples from the principal vegetation zones of Quebec. strategies. The considerable gap between natural and managed forest systems has led to widespread interest in natural disturbance emulation, a management strategy aimed at generating forest ecosystems that.

Designing management strategies based on the emulation of natural disturbance (END) to promote long-term sustainability of riparian forests and their adjacent aquatic ecosystems is an evolving process. Conceptually, the goal of END in riparian forest management is to mimic, to the extent possible, natural disturbance processes within the range of natural variability of the ecosystem while.

Although the concept of forest ecosystem management based on natural disturbance has generated a great deal of interest, few concrete examples exist of FEM principles being put into application. Silvicultural practices that emulate natural disturbances are proposed with examples from the principal vegetation zones of Quebec.

1. Introduction. Manipulation of forest ecosystem complexity has long been a consideration in forest management and silviculture. However, through much of the history of forestry, management approaches reduced complexity to create a more predictable production system modeled after agricultural systems (Puettmann et al., ).Production-focused silvicultural systems were.

This books presents silvicultural methods based in natural forest models—models that emulate natural disturbances and development processes, sustain biological legacies, and allow time to take its course in shaping stands.

in economics is integral to sound forestry policies and practices. This book, a major revision and expansion of Peter. The natural disturbance paradigm, another developing idea, can be summarized as follows: if disturbances shape the composition and dynamics of vegetation communities (Pickett and White ), and the character of vegetation communities defines biodiversity (Huston ), then forest management strategies guided by an understanding of natural.

Buy Ecological Silviculture (): Foundations and Applications: NHBS - Brian J Palik, Anthony W D'Amato, Jerry F Franklin, K Norman Johnson, Waveland Press. One such innovation is disturbance-based management. Under this approach, forest practices that emulate natural ecological processes, such as local disturbance regimes, are viewed as more likely to perpetuate the evolutionary environment and ecosystem functions of the forest matrix.

Date created ; Subjects / Keywords. Silviculture; Natural disturbance management; Forest management; Type of Item Report; DOI   Canada’s boreal forest represents an important contributor of the world’s wood supply industry. However, maintaining or increasing productivity of the boreal forest may be challenging in areas dominated by forested peatlands.

Moreover, sustainable management of these forests must also consider other important aspects of the forest ecosystem such as biodiversity and carbon sequestration. Continuous cover forestry (CCF) aims to emulate small natural disturbances and take advantage of natural regeneration.

To implement these management practices successfully, knowledge of advance regeneration under the canopy in different conditions is crucial. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess [ ] Read more. Modern ecological forestry emphasizes the implementation of management strategies that emulate natural disturbance regimes and stand-development processes (Franklin et al.

Long ).Clearcut harvesting is used to manage forest types historically perpetuated by stand-replacing wildfire and can be maintained on a rotation period that is similar to the historical fire return interval. specific management actions and silvicultural practices for forest adaptation, as well as an associated set of resources to assist managers in using this approach.

A variety of public, private, nongovernmental, and tribal natural resource managers are using this approach to develop projects that implement a diversity of adaptation. Natural Disturbance Regimes and Stream–Riparian Systems.

Natural disturbance regimes in forests can be broadly described in terms of the disturbance agent (e.g., fire, windthrow, insects; Table 1), the spatial extent and pattern of disturbance, and the frequency and intensity of characteristics vary geographically as a function of climate, topography.

IMPROVED MANAGEMENT PRACTICES THAT MORE CLOSELY EMULATE DESIRABLE INFLUENCES OF NATURAL DISTURBANCE REGIMES ARE NEEDED. Impacts A major effort of the CFDR is to examine the impacts of common silvicultural practices on numerous components of several ecosystems.

Specifically, work was completed on wood biomass production and its environmental.
