Invitation to the RTG 2300’s Guest Lecture Series

The RTG 2300 invites everybody interested to the next lecture in its Guest Lecture Series:

Prof. Klaus J. Puettmann will give a lecture on “One treatment does not fit all: restoration thinning in Douglas fir plantations” on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at 4 pm in F 01 (Büsgenweg 1).

About the talk:

The presentation provides an overview of results from two large-scale research studies initiated in the 1990s in Oregon to investigate how the development of old-growth structures can be accelerated in young homogeneous, even-aged Douglas-fir stands. Treatments included different thinning intensities, intermixed with leave islands and gaps of various sizes. Different components of stand structure and composition responded uniquely to restoration thinnings, suggesting that achieving a wide range of structures and composition requires the full suite of silvicultural treatments. Trade-offs among ecosystem services occurred as result of these contrasting responses, suggesting that foresters set priorities where and when different vegetation structures are most desirable within a stand or landscape.

The lecture is part of the RTG 2300’s guest lecture series. The RTG 2300 cordially invites everybody interested to attend the lectures. Further information can be found online at The next RTG guest lectures in 2019 are:

May 22, 2019: David H. Wise (Professor of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Illinois at Chicago) will give a talk on “Trophic interactions in the leaf-litter arthropod community: Insights from mesocosm experiments in North American deciduous forests“.

July 2019 (date tba): Nikolaus Umlauf (Assistant-Professor at the Department of Statistics at the University of Innsbrück)
