BIOFOREST Project 2001-2005



The objectives of the BIOFOREST Project were:

1. Develop methodologies for biodiversity assessment and identify indicator species in important habitats which might be subject to afforestation.

2. Assess the range of biodiversity in representative forests at different stages of the forest cycle.

3. Review and recommend opportunities for enhancement of biodiversity in plantation forests.

4. Assess the importance of open space to forest biodiversity, and how the management of open space can enhance biodiversity.

5. Assess the effectiveness of the Forest Biodiversity Guidelines and recommend alterations where necessary.

These objectives were approached through three different sub-projects, details of which are given in the separate Web pages (see menu on left).
