In recent years we experience an increase in large scale forest disturbances driven by abiotic as well as biotic agents. Besides the economic loss, especially the impact on biodiversity and forest persistence causes great concern. From single tree assessments to large-scale remote sensing we need to combine knowledge, sources, and methods to understand adaptive processes, their limits, and the role they play in forest disturbances to paint a picture of future forests.
