This group will work on Tasks 1 to 4 of the Action focusing on NWFPs from animal origin (e. g. game, honey). WG4 will define the scope of the work to be carried out with the objective of illuminating issues of significance to European forestry. The impact of hunting on the management of forest areas for other NWFPs will be considered.
Working Group 4: Summary & Next steps
Deliverables: 1) a review of the state of the art and identification of knowledge gaps of European NWFPs with animal origin which shall be either a book chapter, a report or published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. The review shall highlight major findings on the ecology, modelling, management, economics, marketing and policies related to animal products derived from forests. Focus will be given to existing and innovative case studies.
