The following text is a small excerpt from the original publication. Within the general INRMM-MiD goal of indexing useful meta-information on INRMM related publications, this excerpt is intended as a handy summary of some potentially interesting aspects of the publication. However, the excerpt is surely incomplete and some key aspects may be missing or their correct interpretation may require the full publication to be carefully read. Please, refer to the full publication for any detail.


Project description. The European Commission, Joint Research Centre, hosts the European Forest Data Centre (EFDAC at ) of the Forest Information System for Europe (FISE). The EFDAC‐FISE platform is envisioned to transparently integrate information referring to forest resources in Europe, including taxa‐specific information. The exercise involves the integration of:
1 ▹ a harmonized collection of reference maps describing the European‐wide distribution of forest tree species along with their habitat suitability (both current and under varying climate change scenarios);
2 ▹ a detailed analysis of the implications that the uncertainties – induced by the many available datasets and the required computational modelling strategies – impose for the correct interpretation and use of each reference map, also for science‐based regional and continental‐scale environmental policies;
3 ▹ an updated review of taxa‐specific research highlights and major topics in the corresponding science‐policy interface at regional, continental and global scale.
The Atlas of European Forest Tree Species is a project within EFDAC‐FISE that will cover these taxa‐specific aspects. It is proposed to be a semantically enhanced, systematic online collection of taxa‐specific articles analyzing the state‐of‐the‐art information of forest tree species in Europe. The overall approach is set in the context of a continuous integration of multiple sources of available information, from field observations (e.g. national forest inventories and other field data), bio‐geo‐climatic analysis and remote sensing. The final maps of taxa distribution and habitat suitability (derived by the iterative integration of all the available sources of information) will be made freely available to the public (see ). All the sources of information will be managed according to their specific distribution policies and acknowledged.

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
