About the project:

Socioeconomic changes in 20th century has brought fundamental changes in forest management practices, which led to a decline of many species and not least, a loss of traditional knowledge of forest practices. The aim of the ROTATE Action is to support the biodiversity of organisms associated with traditional forms of forest management (coppicing, pollarding, leaf litter removal) in Central and Northern Europe. Interdisciplinary approach including ecologists, historians, socio-economists and nature conservationist will ensure overcoming of existing barriers that prevent the re-introduction of these forms of management into practice. The outputs will include ensuring long-term care of selected sites.
