Syllabus
Prerequisiti: Forest Ecology, Silviculture
Conoscenze e abilita' da acquisire: Students will understand the history of forest management and be able to relate society’s views on sustainability to management approaches and the advent of ecosystem management. Students will be acquainted with landscape- and stand-level concepts and management approaches that translate the philosophy of ecosystem management into concrete actions. Students will acquire knowledge on the challenges to maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services in times of climate change. Students will learn how forest certification may support ecological forestry and ecosystem management in practice. Students will develop problem solving skills through a better understanding of the decision-making process regarding complex natural resources management issues and develop critical thinking skills and open-mindedness through a clearer understanding of the roles of scientific information and societal values in ecosystem management. Students will improve their ability to read, understand, and critically discuss scientific articles related to ecosystem management and to persuasively articulate views related to ecosystem management.
Modalita' di esame: Written exam
Criteri di valutazione: The final grade will be based upon performance on the Final Exam and on the active participation in class discussions. Attendance is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged.
Contenuti: A Historical Perspective of Forestry; The Changing Definition of Sustainability and the Importance of Biodiversity; Elements of Ecosystem Management and its Implementation; Threats to Biodiversity; Taking a Landscape-Level Approach to Preserve Biodiversity; Ecological Classification Systems (ECS) and its Use in the Context of Forest Ecosystem Management and Restoration; The Historic Range of Variability (HRV) and its Role in Ecological Restoration and Ecosystem Management; Natural Disturbances and Autogenic Succession Models; Stand Dynamics and the Application of Ecological Silviculture at the Stand Level; Best Management Practices and Riparian Management; Managing Forests in the Face of Changing Climates and Disturbance Regimes; Adaptive Management and Monitoring; Forest Certification and its Relation to Ecosystem Management; Strategic Approaches to Ecosystem Management including Stakeholder Engagement
Attivita' di apprendimento previste e metodologie di insegnamento: Frontal lectures, seminars, and field trips
Eventuali indicazioni sui materiali di studio: Lectures slides, handouts, and readings will be available on the moodle platform via website https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/
