Abstract

The majority of forestry interventions and measures concern forest tree species composition, density, structure and other patterns and characteristics, which in turn influence leaf area index, canopy roughness, albedo, surface humus properties, soil edaphone associations, tree roots density, and many other properties. All of these characteristics are expected to have a profound impact on the water cycle in forests and their adjacent areas.
