Abstract

Climate is an important driver of forest health, productivity, and carbon cycle, but our understanding of these effects is limited for many regions and ecosystems. We present here a large-scale evaluation of climate effects on the productivity of three temperate tree species. We determine whether...

Abstract

Forests in Mediterranean Europe are located in a hot spot for tropospheric ozone formation. We applied two canopy-level stomatal conductance models (Jarvis-type and Ball-Woodrow-Berry models) to two Mediterranean evergreen forests (Umbrella pine at San Rossore, and Holm oak at Castelporziano, in...

Abstract

Biomass as a resource, and as a vulnerable carbon pool, is a key variable to diagnose the impacts of global changes on the terrestrial biosphere, and therefore its proper description in models is crucial. Model-Data Fusion (MDF) or data assimilation methods are useful tools in improving ecosystem...

Gardening has been practiced by humans for food and aesthetic purposes for thousands of years. As urbanization intensifies globally, gardening is increasing in both popularity and extent in urban and suburban regions of the world, thus increasing its impact on the environments. Here we discuss the...

AbstractFull Text

We explored the usefulness of LiDAR for modelling and mapping the stand biomass of two conifer species in southern Spain. We used three different plot sizes and two statistical approaches (i.e. stepwise selection and genetic algorithm selection) in combination with multiple linear regression models...
