In order to understand the evolution of the structure and composition of a forestry system the knowledge of its current dynamics is crucial. It is also very important to understand the historical processes that have being occurring until present.
So that to create a silviculture management plan for the present and the future of a site it is very important to carry out a detailed localised study of the woodland components. From that we can provide amongst other things, a long term vision of the silvogenic cycle, successional class models, and the potential complexity of forest areas.
To ensure the increased resilience of forest systems to cope with climate change it is important to provide strategies for both the conservation and sustainable extraction of forest resources.
