Forest Environment and Conservation Department

Forest Conservation Department aims to assess climate change impact on forest ecosystems, develop adaptation technology to climate change, conserve biodiversity, manage Baekdudaegan Mountain Range , manage urban forests and Maeulsoop, predict and prevent forest disasters.

Forest Ecology Division covers researches on forest ecosystem processes and conserving biodiversity and maintaining forest health.

Research on Forest Ecosystem

Our goal is to develop the ecological forest management techniques on the basis of diverse information containing structure, functions and processes in the forest ecosystem, and the value and benefits of ecosystem services.
To meet this goal, we conduct a ‘long term survey on forest dynamics in 6 LTER sites’, ‘demonstration of silvicultural treatments to enhance forest ecosystem services’, and consideration on conservation and restoration strategies for Baekdudaegan mountain system.’

Research on Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation

We’ve been conducting researches on climate change impact monitoring and developing adaptation tactics (especially for vulnerable forest ecosystems), the investigation and assessment of climate change impact and vulnerability in the forest sector, and the development of a projecting model for the future forest ecosystem.

Forest Ecology Restoration Research

Our research themes include forest restoration of affected/damaged areas, monitoring of ecosystem changes in man-made(artificial?) and the natural restoration area after the forest fire, SDS(Sand and Dust Storm) reduction and combating desertification technology, etc. Based on the research data, we also establish the essential basis for desirable forest restoration at home and abroad, and relevant guidelines.

Forest Soil and Stone Resources

The laboratory of forest soil and stone resources is conducting research on monitoring forest soil acidification, developing forest restoration technology, evaluation methods for DMZ, degraded forest area, industrializing stone resources and quality improvement.
