Many organizations throughout the world utilize community based conservation (CBC) strategies to incorporate rural communities into conservation efforts. One key component to the success of these strategies is to gain trust within the communities which reside in the vicinity of the targeted areas for conservation. The research reported here introduces the concept of organizational legitimacy into the realm of CBC strategy by proposing how dimensions of legitimacy (pragmatic, moral, and cognitive)...
This is first in a series of Spotlight articles highlighting individual sessions at the upcoming IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress. It looks at the trends and needs in forest landowner research.
Tropical forest management increasingly is challenged by multiple, complex, intersecting, and in many cases unprecedented changes in the environment that are triggered by human activity. Many of these changes are associated with the Anthropocene—a new geologic epoch in which humans have become a dominating factor in shaping the biosphere. Ultimately, as human activity increasingly influences systems and processes at multiple scales, we are likely to see more extraordinary and surprising events,...
EUTR News ? March to May 2017 ClientEarth - Publications - 3 days ago
This issue of the EUTR News provides an update on the operation of the EU?s law to address illegal logging, the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR), from March to May 2017. As with all of our previous editions, this issue will include information on what both the European Commission and EU Member States are doing to ensure the proper application of the EUTR, and provide updates on similar legislation internationally.
Woody charcoal production is the main cause of dry forest degradation in the southwestern Madagascar. This paper analyses the effects of this practice on the diversity, represented by species richness, structure, species composition and regeneration of the xerophytic thickets on the Belomotse Plateau, Toliara II District. Eleven 400 m² plots were randomly sampled in woody charcoal production sites and 10 in control sites. Woody charcoal production has reduced xerophytic thickets mean height, density...
The aim of this work has been the development of a methodology for the evaluation of residual forest biomass in Biscay, a province in northern Spain. The study area is located in the Oka river basin, an area of great ecological value qualified by UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1984 as a Biosphere Reserve. The project tries to determine the potential, available and usable as energy resource, residual forests biomass, after the treatments of forest species...
Krecek J, Palán L, Stuchlík E ACID ATMOSPHERIC DEPOSITION IN A FORESTED MOUNTAIN CATCHMENT Abstract : Acid atmospheric deposition is harmful to both forest and aquatic ecosystems. In mountain catchments, acidification also leads to difficulties in water resource management. In 2010-2012, acid atmospheric deposition was analysed in a small forest catchment located in the upper plain of the Jizera Mountains (Czech Republic). Patch observations included monitoring of the canopy interception in two...
Zhang X, Cao QV, Xiang C, Duan A, Zhang J PREDICTING TOTAL AND COMPONENT BIOMASS OF CHINESE FIR USING A FORECAST COMBINATION METHOD Abstract : Accurate estimates of tree biomass are critical for forest managers to assess carbon stock. Biomass of Chinese fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata [Lamb.] Hook.) in southern China was assessed by three alternative methods. In the Separate model approach, total and component tree biomass was directly predicted from a regression equation as a function of tree diameter...
Karličić V, Radić D, Jovičić-Petrović J, Lalević B, Morina F, Curguz VG, Raičević V USE OF OVERBURDEN WASTE FOR LONDON PLANE (PLATANUS × ACERIFOLIA) GROWTH: THE ROLE OF PLANT GROWTH PROMOTING MICROBIAL CONSORTIA Abstract : Overburden waste dumps represent a huge threat to environmental quality. The reduction of their negative impact can be achieved by vegetation cover establishment. Usually, this action is complicated due to site-specific characteristics, such as nutrient deficiency, elevated metal...
Proto AR, Macrì G, Bernardini V, Russo D, Zimbalatti G ACOUSTIC EVALUATION OF WOOD QUALITY WITH A NON-DESTRUCTIVE METHOD IN STANDING TREES: A FIRST SURVEY IN ITALY Abstract : Research and development efforts are currently underway worldwide to examine the potential use of a wide range of non-destructive technologies (NDT) for evaluating wood and wood-based materials, from the assessment of standing trees to in-place structures. For this purpose, acoustic velocity by the Fakopp time of flight (TOF)...
