DescriptionEcological impacts of forest vegetation management are highly complex with many interactions. Interactions are bounded on the one hand by hierarchical levels from genes to species to ecosystems and on the other hand by the tools used and the intensity of management applied to each level of possible interactions. Some impacts are easy to measure, but impacts become more difficult to measure and understand as the scale increases from the stand to landscape level. At the larger scales tools and terms are often not well defined among scientists in the global community.
