Modelling of heterobasidion infection in European forests: a decision-support tool for the forest manager

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-2000-00244
Project type: TN (Thematic Network)
Starting date: 01-01-2001
Duration: 36 months
Total cost: 604,446 EUR
EC Contribution: 544,446 EUR
Scientific Officer: Alexandros ARABATZIS
Research topic: 5.3.1. Multifunctional management of forests

Abstract:
This Concerted Action will bring together a range of experts in forest pathology, forest ecology, modelling of forest systems, and forest managers to prepare a prototype decision-support tool for determining losses to Heterobasidion infection and decay in the range of forest types found in Europe. The Action will establish the output requirements of the end-users, collate the biological and management inputs required and construct a prototype simulation model, concentrating on adaptability and user-friendliness. The Action is perceived as a data collating and basic model construction prelude to development of a full model and extensive field testing under a future research programme.
