Forest Degradation: When Is a Forest Degraded?
The present work proposes stand-level guidelines for identiﬁcation of a degraded forest according to a list of structural, compositional and regeneration criteria and characteristics. Emphasis is put on the need for local deﬁnitions of forest degradation, and identiﬁcation of thresholds that determine the points where the processes of degradation ﬁnalize into degraded forests.

For this purpose, the authors discuss the three major bottlenecks that currently constrain the restoration efforts of forest ecosystems in Chile.
