Temperate broadleaved tree species, i.e. Acer platanoides, Carpinus betulus, Fagus sylvatica, Fraxinus excelsior, Prunus avium, Quercus robur and Q. petraea, Ulmus glabra and Tilia cordata, cover a total area of 200 000 ha of forest land in southern Sweden. Despite their documented importance for economy, biodiversity, social aspects and climate change adaptation, little applied research has focused on these forest types. With its 20 papers, this volume presents the latest findings concerning the management of broadleaved forests for multiple goals including aspects of natural resource economy, human health, habitat conservation and restoration, forest production and wood science. Thus, this volume of Ecological Bulletins should be of great interest to all actors involved in sustainable forest management.
