The rare species problem: the challenge of complete forest demographic inference

MCMAHON Sean

Most species in most forests are rare, with few stems for a given species, and therefore few observations that we can use to infer their dynamics. Rare species are an integral part of the community and can strongly contribute to forest structure and function, and yet we know little about the drivers of their growth and death rates because there are...

Tropical montane forests in Africa: carbon, water and rural livelihoods

CUNI-SANCHEZ Aida

Tropical montane forests, those found above 800m elevation, are unique socio-ecological systems. Lower temperatures, cloudiness, wind and waterlogged soils affect tree composition, forest structure and carbon stocks. Notably, those in Africa have higher carbon than previously expected- I will discuss potential drivers. I will also provide a quick o... [Read more ...]

Explore Biodiversity Using Big Data and Tree of Life

SUN Miao

Tree of Life (Phylogenetic tree) is a crucial reference system for biological research. It captures evolutionary relationships among species, linking all the biological data together with an evolutionary context, serving as the biological “Periodic Table”. In this talk, the author will use his published research cases to demonstrate how to use ... [Read more ...]

The application of a forest Suitability map for sustainable forest management in Suriname and Western French Guiana

PLAYFAIR Stéphan

Within the scope of the master thesis “The application of a forest Suitability map for sustainable forest management in Suriname and Western French Guiana”, the focus shall be on how the Rabia, Storie, and Square Root method of land evaluation using an optimized Digital Elevation Model as primary input dataset reflect current forest management...

aRchi package for Quantitative Structural Model Treatment for Tree Architecture

MARTIN-DUCUP Olivier

Quantitative Structural Models (QSM) obtained from LiDAR data describe the whole topology and geometry of a tree. They are increasingly used in tree architecture and biomass estimation approaches. While very promising there is a lack of tools to analyse them and extract variables of interest on individual trees. The “aRchi” R package provides a... [Read more ...]
