Hotspots in a cold climate – are woodland key habitats biodiversity hotspots? (systematic review)

What is the aim of the review?
To systematically collate and synthesize published and unpublished evidence originating from the Fennoscandia and Baltic countries as well as Russia, in order to address the following questions:

  1. “Are Woodland Key Habitats (WKH) biodiversity hotspots (i.e. do they have higher biodiversity qualities) compared to the surrounding production forests?”
  2. “Is there a difference in biodiversity qualities between WKHs surrounded by production forest and WKHs surrounded by clear cuts?”
