Rationale of the study: collection of key facts about the importance of forests for Natura 2000 and vice versa; document the high stakes and challenges to integrate Natura 2000/nature conservation with for-estry/land-use; and the pressing needs to synthesize available, but scattered state-of-the-art knowledge to inform policymaking and to identify and address existing knowledge gaps.
