Plain Language Summary
This article presents the summary of 12 articles covering topics such as productivity, management, carbon and water cycles, and climate change. Current and future studies on boreal forests should contribute to the review of the impacts of management practices on boreal forest sustainability.
The boreal forest plays a key role in regulating oxygen, water, nutrient and carbon cycles. It also supports significant economic activities by providing high-quality wood fibre for industrial transformation. This research leads to the development of policies and guidelines that promote sustainable management practices.
