Understanding the interactions between the multiple ecosystem services (ES) which can be delivered from a single landscape is essential. Most ... The post Relationships Between Ecosystem Services: Comparing Methods for Assessing Tradeoffs and Synergies appeared first on Center for International Forestry Research .
The agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sectors contribute substantially to the net global anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. ... The post Independent data for transparent monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions from the land use sector – What do stakeholders think and need? appeared first on Center for International Forestry Research .
Protected areas (PAs) in Central Africa provide unprecedented opportunities to maintain ecosystem integrity and safeguard the unique wildlife of one ... The post Food and livelihoods in park-adjacent communities: The case of the Odzala Kokoua National Park appeared first on Center for International Forestry Research .
Estimation of forest stand parameters using remotely sensed data has considerable significance for sustainable forest management. Wide and free access to the collection of medium-resolution optical multispectral Sentinel-2 satellite images is very important for the practical application of remote sensing technology in forestry. This study assessed the accuracy of Sentinel-2-based growing stock volume predictive models of single canopy layer Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands. We also investigated...
Community forestry (CF) is increasingly used in developing countries to achieve both the socioeconomic outcome of poverty reduction and an ecological outcome. There have been many single case studies in a specific region to identify the factors affecting the success or failure of CF. Other studies have used large-N data collected from multiple countries. However, there is a dearth of large-N studies within a single country. In this study, we used a country scale dataset of 197 CF projects, established...
Urban forest (UF) basal area is an important parameter of UF structures, which can influence the functions of the UF ecosystem. However, the spatio-temporal pattern of the basal area in a given UF in regions under rapid urbanization and greening is still not well documented. Our study explores the potential of estimating spatio-temporal UF basal area by using Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery. In our study, the predicting model was established to produce spatiotemporal maps of the urban forest basal...
Pliura A, Jankauskiene J, Lygis V, Suchockas V, Bajerkevičiene G, Verbylaite R RESPONSE OF JUVENILE PROGENY OF SEVEN FOREST TREE SPECIES AND THEIR POPULATIONS TO SIMULATED CLIMATE CHANGE-RELATED STRESSORS, HEAT, ELEVATED HUMIDITY AND DROUGHT Abstract : The study aimed to evaluate response and phenotypic plasticity of juvenile progeny of seven forest tree species Pinus sylvestris, Picea abies, Quercus robur, Fraxinus excelsior, Alnus glutinosa, Betula pendula and Populus tremula and their populations...
Vaglio Laurin G, Avezzano R, Bacciu V, Frate FD, Papale D, Virelli M COSMO-SKYMED POTENTIAL TO DETECT AND MONITOR MEDITERRANEAN MAQUIS FIRES AND REGROWTH: A PILOT STUDY IN CAPO FIGARI, SARDINIA, ITALY Abstract : Mediterranean maquis is a complex and widespread ecosystem in the region, intrinsically prone to fire. Many species have developed specific adaptation traits to cope with fire, ensuring resistance and resilience. Due to the recent changes in socio-economy and land uses, fires are more and...
Navarro-Cerrillo RM, Duque-Lazo J, Manzanedo RD, Sánchez-Salguero R, Palacios-Rodriguez G CLIMATE CHANGE MAY THREATEN THE SOUTHERNMOST PINUS NIGRA SUBSP. SALZMANNII (DUNAL) FRANCO POPULATIONS: AN ENSEMBLE NICHE-BASED APPROACH Abstract : We used Species Distribution Modeling to predict the probability of Iberian pine (Pinus nigra subsp. salzmannii [Dunal] Franco) occurrences in southern Spain in response to environmental variables and to forecast the effects of climate change on their predicted geographical...
Turfan N, Alay M, Sariyildiz T EFFECT OF TREE AGE ON CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS OF ANCIENT ANATOLIAN BLACK PINE (PINUS NIGRA SUBSP. PALLASIANA) NEEDLES IN NORTHWEST TURKEY Abstract : Plant primary and secondary metabolites are chemical compounds synthesized for essential functions, such as growth and development (primary metabolites), and specific functions, such as pollinator attraction or defense against herbivory (secondary metabolites). Their concentrations in plants are genetically determined, but...
