Forestry Compendium

Comprehensive, encyclopedic resource for information on forestry

Changes to Compendia distribution data: the distribution tables, maps and references in datasheets have been restructured to handle the data better for updating and align with a geographic standard. Further details are available on the About page.

AbstractFull Text

In recent years, in Galicia (NW Spain) the forest area has increased gradually and therefore the availability of agricultural area has decreased. This factor could favour the establishment of silvoarable systems in this region with crops such as maize, because in Galicia maize is the main forage...

Grassland resources for extensive farming systems in marginal lands: major drivers and future scenarios. Proceedings of the 19th Symposium of the European Grassland Federation, Alghero, Italy, 7-10 May 2017, 2017, pp 551-553
AbstractFull Text

Silvopastoral systems may be beneficial by combining forestry with livestock grazing. In this work, preliminary results on tree survival and animal performance from a new project on silvopastoral systems under mixed grazing of sheep and goats are presented. A factorial design of three types of...

AbstractFull Text

Mediterranean silvopastoral systems have traditionally provided a wide diversity of ecosystem services (ES), especially in low productivity sites where intensive management and high yield are not possible. In this paper we analyse the trade-offs between two ES: pasture yield for livestock rearing...

AbstractFull Text

The Yield-SAFE is a biophysical model to predict the long-term production according to light and water availability in exclusively agricultural and forest systems and also in agroforestry systems. The productivity estimated with the Yield-SAFE model can be used to determine the Land Equivalent...

AbstractFull Text

In Galician silvopastoral systems (northwest Spain) fertilization with sewage sludge could enhance tree and pasture productivity which is limited by soil acidity. The effect of sewage sludge on tree growth and the pasture production is different depending on the process used to stabilize the sewage ...

AbstractFull Text

The use of plant biomass for the production of energy is one of the solutions for avoiding future ecological disasters and to compensate for the growing shortage of fossil energy resources. Pellets prepared for this research had different proportions (1:3, 1:1, 3:1 w/w) of reed canary grass (...

AbstractFull Text

In many Alpine countries, the use of mountain pastures for cattle is in decline, thus favouring the development of shrubs in these areas. The objectives of this study were to assess the herbage selection and landscape utilisation by suckler cows on a pasture located at 1,800 m a.s.l., and covered...

AbstractFull Text

Wooded rangelands of deciduous oak and beech trees in Greece are mainly grazed by domestic animals but they also fulfil multiple objectives and functions. Vegetation in such environments is characterized as highly heterogeneous in terms of species richness, structure and size, as well as in...

AbstractFull Text

A large number of plant taxa exists in the rangelands of Greece and most provide feed for livestock and wild life. Many rangeland plants are used for ornamental purposes, in turfgrasses for aesthetic and functional reasons, in medicine, in apiculture, as energy plants and for reclamation of...

AbstractFull Text

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of grazing on the nutritive value of the understory vegetation of an open coppice oak forest grazed mainly by goats during the growing season. The research was conducted in Evros prefecture, northeast Greece. A lightly grazed experimental plot ...
