EcolChange seminar (16th December, Thursday): Kadri Runnel about sustaining the habitat value of protected old forest fragments

Seminar of Department of Botany and Centre of Excellence EcolChange

Speaker: Dr. Kadri Runnel (Institute of Zoology, University of Tartu) 

Title of the talk: How to sustain the habitat value of protected old forest fragments?

Time: Thursday, 16 December 2021 at 14.15

Place: virtual seminar in Zoom

Summary: Old-growths are valuable biodiversity hotspots as they provide habitat for a range of species that cannot live elsewhere. However, in modern forest landscapes, old-growths often exist as small fragments vulnerable to isolation and edge effects. The question thus is how to sustain the habitat value of such fragments? In this seminar I will try to answer this based on yet unpublished data from a large biodiversity and forest structure study financed by Estonian State Forest Management Center (RMK).
