Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Forests play a quadruple role in the processes of global change : 1) as a cause, a source of the emission of greenhouse gases (GHC), predominantly in result of deforestation; 2) as a victim of global climatic change, due to the increased sensitivity of trees to pests and diseases; 3) as a benificiary of global changes thanks to the fertiliser effect; 4) as a remedy for global changes thanks to their ability to sequester carbon. The role of forests depends thus on methods of management and the ways in which forest products are used. The paper discusses the effects of forestry operations dealing with carbon accumulation in the forest ecosystems
