The main aim is to review some of the most representative forest-management actions conducted in Sierra Nevada in the last decade, seeding to identify the effects of these actions on the state of the ecosystems before and after the works were executed.

Method and effort

Methodology steps:

  1. Compiling and locating the area of all the actions to be undertaken on the forest stands of the Sierra Nevada National and Natural Parks from 1999. All these actions are digitalized and included in a geographic database.
  2. Compiling of information that enables the description of the state of the forest stands at different points in time during the study.
  3. Selection of pilot areas for the retrospective analysis of the time course of the stand monitored under the management applied. In these, a complete forest inventory (dasometric, epidometric and floristic) is made to evaluate the development of the stand over the time period monitored. A study is made not only of structure but also function.


Both the compiling of the information as well as the data gathering in the field are undertaken only once per area.
