Abstract

Wood as an ecosystem component - An  ecological study of wood as a material has to define two ecosystems of a  different level of integration.     The small-scale ecosystems are the dwelling houses, where a considerable  amount of wood is used for several purposes. Positive effects of wood on the  health of the inhabitants are reported. These effects establish the  significance of the typical association wood-mankind.     The large-scale ecosystem is the global ecosystem of the earth. Ecological  diagnostics on this level have to take into account the Second Law of  Thermodynamics. Forestry and intelligent use of wood are able to slow down  entropy and heat accumulation in the atmosphere.
