Diversité des gestions forestières... diversité des insectes

Abstract : It is commonly admitted that forest biodiversity play a role in ecosystem functioning (recycling of elements, maintenance of soil fertility, tree pollination, resilience). What's more forests have a specific contribution to biodiversity, and international agreements focus on this issue. Given that human activities have a significant impact on forest biodiversity, forest managers now integrate this preoccupation. Forest management involves three spatial scales: territory (fragmentation, forest isolation), forest (open corridors, reserves), plot (silvicultural system, felling area, cover of old-growth stages, tree species selection). Dead wood is peculiarly at stake, as it is related to both the retention for conservation purposes and the timber harvest for economical reasons. In the context of the global change', a balance between ecological benefits and socio-economical constraints of forest management practices has to be sought.
