Fruizione futura dei servizi ecosistemici. Prospettive in funzione dei cambiamenti climatici e della gestione nelle foreste montane


Adverse climate change effects might compromise the future provision of crucial ecosystem services (ES) from European mountain forests. Using a forest dynamic model, we evaluated the future supply of ES - as well as synergies and trade-offs - in case study areas of tour mountain regions under multiple management and climate change scenarios. lmpacts of climate change on the provision of ES were found to be highly heterogeneous and to depend on the region, site and future climate. Although in some cases alternative management may be more suitable than current regimes, adaptation options must be evaluated locally due to the highly different magnitude of the climate change impacts in different regions and along elevation gradients
