Biodiversity conservation policies in forest systems should taken into account the effect on ecosystem services of spatial interactions within the forest landscape. These interactions between landscape components may imply the existence of spatial externalities due to the interdependence between users/managersﰒ decisions. Thus, management decisions of any one landowner may have consequences for the decisions of neighbouring landowners. In this paper, we review the way in which spatial interactions have been analysed in forest economics and management literature, and analyse the implication of spatial interactions in forest landscapes.
