Global change (including climate change and land use change) is a serious threat to the stability of forests. We are investigating combined strategies of mitigation and adaptation, based on experimental and modeling studies of ecosystem processes. Innovative is the study of ecosystem thermodynamics with the use of thermal indicators for the follow-up of forest microclimate in periods of drought stress and for the evaluation of human land use impact. Evapotranspiration is a key process in this, which we study on different scale levels from leaf over stand to catchment and global. An important forest function is carbon sequestration in biomass, soil and wood products. Increasing the carbon sink in soils is often improving its erosion resistance and other environmental benefits
