Forest management optimisation models and habitat diversity: a goal programming approach



Forest management optimisation models and habitat diversity: a goal programming approach



Journal of the Operational Research Society 53(11): 1175-1184



This paper proposes an analytical framework, based upon Goal Programming, to incorporate an operational measure of habitat diversity into a forest management optimisation model. First of all, the trade-off curve between the proposed measure of habitat diversity and financial returns is determined. Then, the measure of habitat diversity is integrated in conjunction with other relevant criteria into a compact forest management model. The way in which both models work is explained with the help of a simple but illustrative case study.
