Abstract: The management of forests „closer to nature“ has in recent decades increased in significance in the search for models of sustainable forest management. In this context, studies in existing natural forest reserves play a particular role. Suserup Skov is the best example of a beech dominated, semi-natural deciduous forest in Denmark. Such „field laboratories“ can help us to a better understanding of the relationship between natural disturbances and structural and functional dynamics of mixed deciduous forest ecosystems. This work analyses the results of forest dynamics on the basis of studies carried out during 1992-2002 and discusses the findings in relation to their application in sustainable forest management, including applying the concept of „Forest Development Types“ (FDT) for developing long-term goals for close-to-nature forest management in Denmark.
