2021 FECS线上系列研讨会——森林生态系统可持续性
Sustaining Forest Ecosystems

a workshop managed by Forest Ecosystems (https://forestecosyst.springeropen.com) 

Forests include a great variety of ecosystems where plants and animals interact with their physical environment. The challenge is to sustain their ability to function, to adapt changing climates, and to satisfy a variety of human needs. This workshop, presented online during the COVID 19 pandemia, complements textbooks and standard teaching syllabi. In each of the following nine remote sessions, we will provide 3?5 published papers, a dataset with R code, a 30min pptx (live or narrated and available for download), and a 15?30min spontaneous discussion among the 20 active participants.

Schedule:

21:30?22:30 (Beijing Time) / 14:30?15:30 (Central European Time CET) for each session, every Tuesday

1. Biomes and Anthromes  Dr. Klaus v. Gadow 2 Mar 2021

Reconciling the classic biomes paradigm and the new anthromes paradigm; traditional and new approaches to
forest classification; a toolbox for sustaining forest ecosystems.
 
2. Continuous Forest Observation Dr. Klaus v. Gadow 9 Mar 2021
Active experimentation vs passive observation; examples of forest observational infrastructures; establishing a field
plot with mapped trees; analyzing the structure and dynamics of species-rich forests.
 
3. Review of 3D remote Sensing Dr. Xinlian Liang 16 Mar 2021
A brief review of remote sensing technology including airborne and terrestrial laser scanning as well as image-based
technologies for detailed assessment of field plots; examples of new technology and applications.
 
4. Forest Density Dr. Klaus v. Gadow 23 Mar 2021
Measuring forest density; modeling risk, mortality and survival; estimating maximum density in planted and selfregenerating forests; analyzing structural modification and selection preferences in harvest events.
 
5. Drivers of ?-Diversity Dr. Chunyu Zhang 30 Mar 2021
Latitudinal gradients and ecological drivers of ?-diversity; variation across spatial scales in a large temperate forest
region; random assembly null models for assessing effects of species abundance distributions on ?-diversity.
 
6. Estimating Forest Growth and Production Dr. Juan Gabriel ?lvarez González 6 Apr 2021
Estimating height growth and site quality in planted forests and the use of such models for estimating forest
production. Integrating estimates of tree growth and forest production (example with R code).
 
7. Biological Diversity Dr. Klaus v. Gadow 13 Apr 2021
Measures of diversity, forest diversity and biomass production; acquisitive/conservative traits and niche
complementarity; assessing dissimilarities among forest communities.
 
8. Stand Delineation Dr. Timo Pukkala 20 Apr 2021
Automated forest segmentation. Using cellular automata, self-organizing maps and combinatorial optimization for
clustering grid cells into homogeneous stands.
 
9. Sustainable Use Dr. Klaus v. Gadow 27 Apr 2021
A review of sustainable use: traditional harvest scheduling vs residual structures; mitigating conservation conflicts;
rigid zoning or small-scale spatial mixing of options in a continuously evolving landscape.

 

Our aim is a) to facilitate access to some key areas of forest ecological research, and b) to present a coherent set of methods for sustaining forests where humans are an integral and essential part of ecosystems. Scientific publishing is big business. The dominance of the English language in the scientific community conveys an advantage to scientists from English-speaking countries, and a marginalization of the non-English speaking world of science. We will address this deficit by including a contribution on scientific writing and publishing.

 

Introduction of the presenters:


Dr. Chunyu Zhang is a professor of Forest Ecology and Management at the Beijing Forestry University. His research is focused on ecological and biogeographic processes that generate specific forest patterns and functions.

Dr. Juan Gabriel ?lvarez González is a professor of Biometry at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. His research interest is focused on the improvement and integration of forest models into forest simulators suitable for different spatial levels: tree, stand, management area, landscape, region and country.

Dr. Xinlian Liang is a senior research scientist and a team leader at the Department of Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry at the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute and the Centre of Excellence in Laser Scanning Research of the Academy of Finland.

Dr. Timo Pukkala is a professor of Forest Management Planning at the University of Eastern Finland. He has been teaching Forest Management Planning for 30 years.

Dr. Klaus von Gadow is a retired professor at the Georg-August-University in G?ttingen, Germany. His main research interest is how to sustain forest resilience in times of change.

There will be at least twenty active attendees (AAs) from more than ten countries in the discussion. For more information, please contact Ms. Huang (huangzhen@bjfu.edu.cn).
