Bridging national and reference definitions for harmonizing forest statistics

  
Forest Science (June 2012), pp. 214-223, https://doi.org/10.5849/forsci.10-067

Abstract

Harmonization is the process of making information and estimates comparable across administrative borders. The degree to which harmonization succeeds depends on many factors, including the conciseness of the definitions, the availability and quality of data, and the methods used to convert an estimate according to a local definition to an estimate according to the reference definition. Harmonization requires the availability and use of common reference definitions and methods for converting from estimates based on national definitions to estimates based on reference ...

 

Comparison of methods used in European National Forest Inventories for the estimation of volume increment: towards harmonisation

  
Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 73, No. 4. (2016), pp. 807-821, https://doi.org/10.1007/s13595-016-0554-5

Abstract

[Key message] The increment estimation methods of European NFIs were explored by means of 12 essential NFI features. The results indicate various differences among NFIs within the commonly acknowledged methodological frame. The perspectives for harmonisation at the European level are promising. [Context] The estimation of increment is implemented differently in European National Forest Inventories (NFIs) due to different historical origins of NFIs and sampling designs and field assessments accommodated to country-specific conditions. The aspired harmonisation of increment estimation requires a comparison and an analysis ...

 

The role of European National Forest Inventories for international forestry reporting

  
Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 73, No. 4. (2016), pp. 793-806, https://doi.org/10.1007/s13595-016-0545-6

Abstract

[Key message] Despite agreements on definitions, the national data provided for international reporting are lacking comparability. To address this limitation the European National Forest Inventory Network has established criteria to harmonise definitions and to provide tools to transform national data into internationally comparable data. [Context] Forest reporting presents a series of challenges for countries, owing to diverse processes at international level such as the Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA), Convention on Biological Diversity, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol. ...

Abstract

[Excerpt] The European Atlas of Forest Tree Species is the first comprehensive publication of such a unique and essential environmental resource, that is, our trees. Leading scientists and forestry professionals have contributed in the many stages of the production of this atlas, through the collection of ground data on the location of tree species, elaboration of the distribution and suitability maps, production of the photographic material and compilation of the different chapters. The European Atlas of Forest Tree Species is both ...

 

Climate change, connectivity and conservation decision making: back to basics

  
Journal of Applied Ecology, Vol. 46, No. 5. (October 2009), pp. 964-969, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2664.2009.01695.x

Abstract

The challenge of climate change forces us to re-examine the assumptions underlying conservation planning. [\n] Increasing ‘connectivity’ has emerged as the most favoured option for conservation in the face of climate change. [\n] We argue that the importance of connectivity is being overemphasized: quantifying the benefits of connectivity per se is plagued with uncertainty, and connectivity can be co-incidentally improved by targeting more concrete metrics: habitat area and habitat quality. [::Synthesis and applications] Before investing in connectivity projects, conservation practitioners should ...

 

Common tree definitions for national forest inventories in Europe

  
Silva Fennica, Vol. 43, No. 2. (2009), pp. 303-321, https://doi.org/10.14214/sf.463

Abstract

At the international level, various definitions have been established for the compilation and publication of forest resources assessment results over the last decade. These international definitions frequently rely on terms that are not precisely specified for inventory purposes and do not completely cover the requirements arising from the application of National Forest Inventory (NFI) data. Also, with respect to conventional topics such as forest area and growing stock estimation, several terms and expressions referring to individual trees are not, or are ...

 

Harmonizing National Forest Inventories

  
Journal of Forestry (June 2009), pp. 179-187

Abstract

National forest inventories are a primary source of data for national and large area assessments of sustainability and biodiversity and for international forest resource reporting. However, the ability of countries to produce compatible estimates using these data is impeded by the diversity of their national inventory definitions, sampling designs, plot configurations, measured variables, and measurement protocols. In addition, because the differing features of these inventories have historical, commercial, and environmental justification, prospects for standardizing inventories are minimal. The best current alternative ...

Applying quality assurance procedures to environmental monitoring data: a case study

  
Journal of Environmental Monitoring, Vol. 11, No. 4. (2009), pp. 774-781, https://doi.org/10.1039/b818274b

Abstract

Managing data in the context of environmental monitoring is associated with a number of particular difficulties. These can be broadly split into issues originating from the inherent heterogeneity of the parameters sampled, problems related to the long time scale of most monitoring programmes and situations that arise when attempting to maximise cost-effectiveness. The complexity of environmental systems is reflected in the considerable effort and cost required to collect good quality data describing the influencing factors that can improve our understanding of ...

 

Data-set visibility: Cite links to data in reference lists

  
Nature, Vol. 492, No. 7429. (19 December 2012), pp. 356-356, https://doi.org/10.1038/492356d

Abstract

A huge amount of work goes into creating data sets. It is crucial that these data, big or small, should be more prominently linked to their associated research articles as standard practice.To achieve this, data can be cited directly in a publication's reference section ...

 

A Map-based Web Server for the Collection and Distribution of Environmental Data

  
In Bridging the gap: ISPRS WG VI/3 and IV/3 Workshop, Ljubljana, February 2-5, 2000 : Collection of Abstracts (2000)

Abstract

Environmental data constitute a very wide and poorly structured knowledge domain. The only characteristic that they share is to be associated to a certain geographical object, either a point, or a line, or a polygon. These geographical objects have in turn known relationships among them (e.g. inclusion, closeness). A map can thus constitute a unique way for structuring such a wide domain, thus allowing an ordered data storage and retrieval. A web server for collecting and distributing environmental data has been ...

 

Implications of changing climate for global wildland fire

  
International Journal of Wildland Fire, Vol. 18, No. 5. (2009), pp. 483-507, https://doi.org/10.1071/wf08187

Abstract

Wildland fire is a global phenomenon, and a result of interactions between climate–weather, fuels and people. Our climate is changing rapidly primarily through the release of greenhouse gases that may have profound and possibly unexpected impacts on global fire activity. The present paper reviews the current understanding of what the future may bring with respect to wildland fire and discusses future options for research and management. To date, research suggests a general increase in area burned and fire occurrence but there ...

 

Multiscale effects on spatial variability metrics in global water resources data

  
Water Resources Management, Vol. 24, No. 9. (1 July 2010), pp. 1903-1924, https://doi.org/10.1007/s11269-009-9530-2

Abstract

Spatial scales and methods for dealing with scale have been widely discussed in the water resources literature. Different spatial processes operate at different scales so interpretations based on data from one scale may not apply to another. Understanding the behavior of phenomena at multiple-scales of data aggregation is thus imperative to accurate integrations of data and models at different geographic resolutions. This study tests theoretical concepts of scale by presenting empirical results of multiscale GIS and statistical analyses on gridded water-availability, ...
