The ongoing loss of natural forests, which in some regions may have taken many millennia to develop, is.

Introduction This book brings together a selection of original research articles that address biodiversity and conservation in plantation forests. Although such forests are perhaps the ‘poor cousins’ of the species richer natural and semi-natural forests, they can still make a significant contribution to biodiversity conservation.

Natural forests are usually more suitable as habitat for a wider range of native forest species than plantation forests but there is abundant evidence that plantation forests can provide valuable habitat, even for some threatened and endangered species, and may contribute to the conservation of biodiversity by various mechanisms.

Plantation forests and biodiversity: oxymoron or opportunity. mine whether ‘plantation forests and biodiversity’ are indeed an oxymoron or an opportu- nity, it is necessary to consider the wider context of a plantation forest and to take numerous factors into account that vary substantially among locations and countries, and that ultimately determine the likely eVects on biodiversity.

Europe is certainly the most intensively. Losses of natural and semi-natural forests, mostly to agriculture, are a significant concern for biodiversity. Against this trend, the area of intensively managed plantation forests increases, and there is much debate about the implications for biodiversity.

The Greater Mekong River Subregion (GMS) is a global biodiversity hotspot. Macrofungi play an essential role as decomposers, parasites, and symbionts, and are also an important source of medicine, food, and income for many communities in the GMS; however, the diversity and composition of macrofungi in this region remain poorly understood.
