- Model-based analyses on the effects of forest management on tree growth/yield, stem and wood/fibre properties (e.g. three-dimensional structure of tree stem and tree crown including knots and branches, growth of annual rings, wood density and fibre length),
- Model-based analyses on impacts of climate change and forest management on the risks of wind and snow damages in forests, and on the carbon sequestration, and biomass production of boreal forests,
- Integration of ecological forest ecosystem modelling and risk modelling.
