Abstract:

Mediterranean forests are complex social-ecological systems that provide multiple goods and services. Mediterranean forests are complex social-ecological systems that provide multiple goods and services. Thinking adaptive management options to increase their resilience in the context of global change and related uncertainties requires a new paradigm, focusing on trajectories rather than states of the forest. Our metadisciplinary research on the basic mechanisms and their interactions that drive the trajectory of the social-ecological system aims to :

  1. produce global change scenarios specifically dedicated to the Mediterranean forests;
  2. develop process-based approach of biodiversity and functional response of Mediterranean forests to disturbance;
  3. develop integrated assessment of ecosystem services and their dynamics based on ecosystem functions and their economic evaluation;
  4. assess adaptive forest management strategies, policy and governance options for their expected impact on resilience.

This project contributes to the Mediterranean Forest Research Agenda 2010-2020.
