Biodiversity visible in commercial forests

upm mika pirilaBiodiversity visible in commercial forests

For two decades, UPM has systematically developed methods for securing biodiversity in sustainably managed commercial forests.
Mikko Pirilä, a forest specialist working for UPM in the Kanta-Häme region of Finland, has been managing forests for over 15 years. Pirilä studied forestry in Joensuu and originally became interested in forest engineering after taking up orienteering as a hobby.

“There were several forest professionals among my orienteering friends. They gave me an idea of what the work might be like and I took a liking to the forestry field. In addition to orienteers, there are also many skiers, hunters and nature enthusiasts among forest specialists,” Pirilä says.

Forest specialists get to spend time in forests as part of their everyday duties. Approximately half of Pirilä’s working week is spent at the office and half in the field.

La radiación ultravioleta influye en la fertilidad de los suelos

CAMPOLa radiación ultravioleta influye en la fertilidad de los suelos

La degradación por la luz de los restos vegetales que se incorporan al suelo constituye un factor a tener en cuenta en la sostenibilidad de las zonas áridas.
La fotodegradación de los restos vegetales en los espartales ibéricos, como el de la zona estudiada de la imagen, influye en la fertilidad de los suelos y la regulación del carbono. [María Almagro, CEBAS]
Investigadores pertenecientes a dos centros del CSIC, el Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales (MNCN) y el Centro de Edafología y Biología Aplicada del Segura (CEBAS), han analizado la velocidad de la degradación de la hojarasca de las plantas en los suelos áridos y cómo se ve afectada por la exposición a la radiación ultravioleta. Han comprobado que la descomposición de los restos, que contribuyen a la fertilidad de los suelos, depende de las condiciones ambientales y parece que interacciona con la actividad local de los microorganismos.
