Help to understand forestry and forest adaptation in the context of global change. Fill the SURVEY in!

A team headed by Klaus Puettmann (Oregon State University, USA), Austin Himes (Mississippi State University, USA), and Jürgen Bauhus (Freiburg University, Germany) is investigating the global information base for forest management (specifically silviculture) in the context of global change. The study aims to obtain an overview of the status and future relevance of current knowledge on silviculture and ecosystem services provision through the global perspectives of forestry professionals. We kindly ask you to fill the following survey (link below). Thank you in advance for your support! 


The information gathered in this survey will be used to identify knowledge gaps, suggest topics and regions to prioritize in research and education, encourage information sharing and promote a more global discussion on forestry and forest adaptation in the context of global change.  For this survey, researchers try to obtain the full range of perspectives on this topic from researchers/educators, managers, and administrators working for industry, government agencies, NGO’s, and others.

In this context, we would like to invite you to be part of these research efforts. Please go to and complete the survey by the end of February 2021, where you will be asked about your experiences in relation to a specific forest type. Even though you may want to present your opinion about various forest types, it is important that you only fill out the survey once. If you cannot participate, can you suggest alternative professionals who can provide us with their insights?

It takes roughly 15 minutes to complete the survey! Your contribution will be greatly appreciated! 

If you would like more information or have any questions or concerns, please contact

Thank you for your participation and best wishes.
