Annals of Forest Science is an international journal that publishes articles describing basic and applied research about forest science in the context of global change.

The scope covers following aspects:

  • biology of trees and associated organisms (symbionts, pathogens, pests),
  • forest dynamics and ecosystem processes under environmental or management drivers (ecology, genetics),
  • risks and disturbances affecting forest ecosystems: biology, ecology, economics,
  • forestry wood chain including tree breeding, forest management and productivity, ecosystem services, silviculture and plantation management,
  • wood sciences.

The Editorial Board encourages:

  • Review articles on timely topics in the scope of the journal,
  • Multidisciplinary studies that address large forest areas and/or time spans,
  • New ideas or methodologies for measuring or monitoring any property of interest for tree biology, forest ecosystem dynamics, wood, ...
  • Model-based papers focused on the Forestry Wood Chain, including carbon accounting investigations, ecosystem services, quantification of the relationships between forest management and the properties of end products,
  • Papers addressing economic and social issues of forest management under climate change,
  • Extended data bases made available to a wider community.
