THE PROJECTS STAGES

Development of methodological stages for monitoring of forest biodiversity


 

 

Objectives of the first stage 2003 year

 

Analytical review of international and national experience in research, conservation and sustainable forest use

 

Selection of parameters and optimal estimating procedures for defining forest biodiversity state within the framework of territories of different scale (local, regional, global level)

 

Selection of model objects for research of forest biodiversity at local and regional levels

 

Forming cartographical and semantic databases for selected objects and corresponding territorial levels

 

Development of indicators and methods for assessment of typological, ecological and taxonomical diversity with using of remote sensing data (RSD)

 

Arrangement of complex field surveys for correction of forest typology as well as RSD verifying

 

 

 

 

 

Objectives of the second stage 2004 year

 

Analysis of anthropogenic impact on forest ecosystems (fires, logging, contamination) for the purpose of assessment of biodiversity at regional level

 

Development of procedure and algorithms of heterogeneous cartographical data comparison

 

Forming of pilot GIS- version of forest biodiversity at regional and federal levels

 

Arrangement of complex field surveys for correction of forest typology as well as RSD verifying

 

Development of theoretical conception on potential forest biodiversity for European Russia

 

Detection of main succession types determining biodiversity dynamics in forest ecosystems of boreal zone

 

 

 

 

 

Objectives of the third stage 2005 year

 

Development of methods for forecast and algorithms of accounting variants of biodiversity dynamics under different sceneries of nature management at the base of GIS-technologies

 

Inventory of typological diversity of zonal forest ecosystems in European Russia

 

Detection of regional features of forest biodiversity

 

Development of spatial structure and dynamic models of forest biodiversity

 

Development of bases and methods of environmental cover for program of steady forest use, promoting conservation of natural forest biodiversity

 

Arrangement of complex field surveys for detection of characteristic and intensity of anthropogenic impacts, as well as RSD correction, typology, verifying
