The Integrate+ demonstration sites serve for virtual tree selection exercises as well as show cases for field visits. Main goal is to train and eventually improve decision making capacities related to the integration of biodiversity aspects into forest management. The use of well-designed software (‘I+ software’) and mobile devices allows direct feedback on silvicultural decisions and related ecological and economic effects.
On the basis of transparent data, different management strategies and their consequences can be objectively discussed by forest practitioners, decision makers, scientists, or other interested groups directly on site.
