Forest Economics

We have continually been using economics tools in our research, as can be seen in the results shown in previous lines of research. For the development of various works, I have benefited from the contributions of other ECSEN colleagues (especially Prof. Carlos Romero and Prof. A. Casimiro Herruzo). Omitting some of the publications already mentioned in other lines (especially those related to the economically optimal forest rotation and forest valuation), some selected publications are showed below:
