A new handbook titled “Adaptive and close-to-nature management in mixed sub-humid Mediterranean forests: holm oak, chestnut, common oak and pine woods” has been just published.
This handbook is based on the experience and knowledge acquired in the framework of the LIFE MixForChange project, whose purpose is to augment the adaptive capacity of mixed sub-humid Mediterranean forests to climate change through the design, implementation and transfer of an innovative form of silviculture which maintains and promotes these forests’ ecological and socioeconomic functions. The project has been implemented in mixed forests dominated by holm oak, chestnut, oak and pine, distributed across four geographical areas in Catalonia (northeast Spain): the massif of Montnegre and Corredor, massif of Montseny, BellmuntCollsacabra range and valleys of Ripollès county, in a total of 39 demonstrative stands with a total of 197 ha.
