L'estimation de la biomasse et de la productivité forestières à l’épreuve des changements environnementaux

Abstract : In the light of current environmental changes, forest ecosystem services must be redefined and their scope broadened, while forest sustainability must continue to be a priority. New methods for the quantification of forest volumes and biomass are needed for the purpose of estimating timber and fuel wood resources, as well as carbon sequestration. Sustainable forest management requires that removals be defined in relation to forest productivity for which relevant environmental factors need to be explored and quantified. The requirements of these approaches furthermore imply broadening geographical coverage and taking into account the species diversity inherent to forest resources. The authors review current progress on these issues in France, offering a historical perspective and outlining possible future developments. This review brings to light significant advances and a realistic, short-term outlook for further progress.
