I am professor in forest growth and yield since 1983 and have been working in this field since my master exam in 1968. My research is focussed on growth modelling from stand establishment over the whole rotation and I have had the opportunity to establish a lot of long-term experiments that now underpin the modelling for the Heureka project (www.heureka.se). The exotic species lodgepole pine has been introduced in large scale in our forests and I have especially examined its properties and productivity compared to the native Scots pine. In the last years I have studied models for the stand dynamics of natural forsts in forest reserves and continuous cover forestry, as well as the thinning response in thinning experiments. Several of our long-term experiments concerns spacing and selectivity, and a new PhD student will be directed on effects of genetic and phenotypic selection on the performance of the new stands.
