Land Use Change and Management Effects Research
Managing wetland landscapes requires a detailed understanding of biotic and abiotic ecosystem processes and their interaction with silvicultural practices.
The sustainability of landscapes containing wetlands depend on the upland influences and downstream outputs which are governed by complex interactions among hydrology, biogeochemical processes, vegetation community dynamics, animal populations, and natural and anthropogenic disturbance regimes.
Factors affecting these landscapes are a growing demand for both timber and non-timber forest products, urbanization and other land use changes, and climate change. Such forces impact forest productivity, water quality, wildlife and fisheries, and ecosystem structure and function.
