Forest Dynamics


This course is dedicated to the students of the joint Master’s program Global Forestry. It is an introduction to the dynamics of tropical forests. The objectives are to:

  • Be able to describe the state and dynamics of a forest.
  • Understand the dynamics of succession and the role of disturbances.
  • Understand some fundamental theories.
  • Introduce anthropogenic disturbances before looking at forest management and harvesting.
