“50 years Annals of Forest Science”: An evolutionary ecology perspective to address forest pathology challenges of today and tomorrow

Increasing human impacts on forests, including unintentional movement of pathogens, climate change, and large-scale intensive plantations, are associated with an unprecedented rate of new diseases. An evolutionary ecology perspective can help address these challenges and provide direction

Is anticipated seed cutting an effective option to accelerate transition to high forest in European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) coppice stands?

Key message Traditional coppice conversion to high forest through periodic thinning requires a long period to attain the regeneration stage. We showed that anticipating seed cutting can accelerate the progression of the stands towards more adult stand

“50 years Annals of Forest Science”: Temperate and boreal forest tree phenology: from organ-scale processes to terrestrial ecosystem models

We demonstrate that, beyond leaf phenology, the phenological cycles of wood and fine roots present clear responses to environmental drivers in temperate and boreal trees. These drivers should be included in terrestrial ecosystem models. Abstract In temperate

Genetic differentiation of European larch along an altitudinal gradient in the French Alps

Despite variable dynamics of genetic diversification at the different altitudinal levels, strong gene flow tends to standardize larch genetic diversity: the larch forest distributed along the altitudinal gradient can be regarded as a single population. Abstract While

Stand volume models based on stable metrics as from multiple Aerial Laser Scanning ALS

Key message : The selection of stable metrics can generate reliable models between different data sets. The height metrics provide the greatest stability, specifically the higher percentiles and the mode. Height metrics transfer more predictive power than
