Policies and Developing Plans Towards Sustainability of Mountain Birch Ecosystems in Scandinavia L. Bäck, B. Solberg, H. Tömmervik, F. Wielgolaski Pages The onset of anthropogenic influences following the settlement of Iceland in the ninth century, combined with a harsh climate, volcanic soils, and fragile ecosystems, led to catastrophic ecosystem degradation and soil erosion, and the loss of more than 95% of native birch woodlands (Aradottir and Arnalds   In this light, the text evaluates the Nordic mountain birch ecosystem with examples from different sites in the Nordic countries and authors analyse vegetation and soils, and investigate the influence of climate change, insect pests, grazing pressure by sheep and reindeer, construction of roads and other consequences of increasing : Paperback.

Betula pubescens is commonly known as downy birch, with other common names including moor birch, white birch, European white birch or hairy birch. It is a deciduous tree growing to 10 to 20 m (33 to 66 ft) tall (rarely to 27 m), with a slender crown and a trunk up to 70 cm (28 in) (exceptionally 1 m) in diameter, with smooth but dull grey-white bark finely marked with dark Family: Betulaceae.

The successful long-term sustainable management of forests is dependent on our knowledge of their history, present state, and responses to changing environmental conditions. The Nordic mountain birch ecosystem – challenges to sustainable management.
