LIFE SySTEMiC (LIFE18 ENV/IT/00124) aims to develop a support tool for sustainable forest management that facilitates the choice of silvicultural practices to be adopted to preserve forest resilience.
EU forests cover a wide range of climate zones and forest types, the informed choice of a silvicultural system is a crucial step in forest planning that can have important consequences for the sustainability and biodiversity of the forest ecosystem.
The main objective of LIFE SySTEMiC is to use a combination of advanced landscape genomics, applied genetics, modelling and silvicultural methods resulting in an innovative genetic biodiversity and forestry model (GenBioSilvi).
