Industrial Forest Plantations

The industrial forest plantations are the unique forest system that has been selected as a separate line of research, due to the importance it currently possesses in my research. In summary, it can be said that, together with the help of other researchers from ECSEN and other countries (Prof. Luiz C. Estraviz Rodriguez, from ESALQ,  University of São Paulo,  Brazil) we have been applying mathematical programming tools in order to propose different management models . Next, some publications are selected, not repeating those that have to do with sustainability, which have already been outlined in the corresponding line of research:
