Abstract

Snow depth is an important factor in water resources management in Northeast China. Forest covers 40% of Northeast China, and the presence of forests influences the accuracy of snow depth retrievals from passive microwave remote sensing data. An optimal iteration method was used to retrieve the...

Abstract

Characterization of tropical forest trees has been limited to field-based techniques focused on measurement of diameter of the cylindrical part of the bole, with large uncertainty in measuring large trees with irregular shapes, and other size attributes such as total tree height and the crown size....

Abstract

Existing forest biomass stock maps show discrepancies with in-situ observations in Mexico. Ground data from the National Forest and Soil Inventory of Mexico (INFyS) were used to calibrate a maximum entropy (MaxEnt) algorithm to generate forest biomass (AGB), its associated uncertainty, and forest...

CAB ReviewFull Text

In the face of globally diminishing natural habitats in biodiversity-rich regions, agricultural landscapes around protected areas have increasingly gained importance as extended habitat for wildlife species. Rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) and oil palm (Elais guineensis) plantations are two of the...

AbstractFull Text

Organic matter cycling is critical to nutrient supply in forested ecosystems. Harvesting influences future nutrient supply by removing organic matter, but the extent of removal varies with harvesting methods. In New Zealand plantations there is little long-term data to help evaluate the relative...
