Dr. Heli Peltola


Research group: Dynamics and Management of Boreal Forests

The main research focus is on dynamics and sustainable management of boreal forest ecosystems under changing climatic conditions, with implications on the production of forest biomass (timber, energy biomass), carbon sequestration, and risk management of forests (e.g. wind/snow extremes and drought). In this work, it is also evaluated adaptive management strategies needed in boreal forests and forestry and the potentials offered by forests and forestry to mitigate the climate change.  The model based research employ well-validated forest ecosystem models (e.g. SIMA, FinnFor), mechanistic wind damage risk model (HWIND), and life cycle assessment (LCA) tool developed by the research group. The integrated use of forest ecosystem model (SIMA) and LCA tool makes it also possible to evaluate the sustainability of whole forest production chain in regard to the production of timber and energy biomass and their use for wood based products and energy.

She has also over 100 oral presentations and posters in workshops/seminars and over 30 interviews for articles, radio and television programmes popularising science. She has participated in total about 30 national and international (50%)  research projects and is internationally the most highly recognized and cited expert in regard to mechanistic modeling of wind damage risks to forests (pioneer research in 1990’s), but also well known and recognized expert in forest ecosystem modelling, sustainable management of boreal forests, climate change impact and adaptation studies. Her research has supported the updating of Guidelines for Finnish forest management in private forestry by Tapio, 2012-2018. She has also contributed to the update of Finnish Forest Law (expert statement to MMM for forest regeneration questions, March 25, 2013). Her research has provided background material for the preparation of new EU forestry strategy (Peltola et al. 2012. Climate change impacts and adaptation measures in Finnish forestry, in: ISTO synthesis report, edt. Ruuhela, R. FMI) via the MMM.
