Title : Structure and Biophysical Variable of Mediterranean Aleppo Pine Forest: Case of Boutaleb Forest (North East of Algeria)
Abstract :

Boutaleb forest is one of mediterranean forest which located in the North east of Algeria in the province of Setif, and characterize by a very important specific diversity belongs to three types of formations: Aleppo pine, Holm oak and Atlas cedar. The objective of this work is to study the sanitary state, describe the structure and biophysical characteristics of the trees of Pinus halepensis Mill in their naturel and wooded states. The dendrometric measurements and the DEPEFEU protocol, on two sample plots of 900m² of Aleppo pine were carried out. The results obtained show that this species is more developed in the wooded state than in the natural state and some signs of deterioration were presents which requires a silvicultural intervention to improve the health status of the damaged species.
