Under the umbrella of the Russian Academy of Sciences the new program “State and resource-ecological potential of Northern Eurasia’s terrestrial ecosystems under global changes” has been started in April 2006.This program is related to NEESPI.
- Monitoring methodology of large scale changes in Northern Eurasia’s terrestrial ecosystems.
- Modeling of production processes in terrestrial ecosystems.
- Biogeochemical cycles in Northern Eurasia’s terrestrial ecosystems.
- Methodology of assessment and preservation of forest ecosystems biodiversity.
- Mapping of Northern Eurasia’s terrestrial ecosystems.
- Integrated databases on Northern Eurasia’s terrestrial ecosystems including data on ground based, aero and satellite observations.
- Long term prognosis of natural and anthropogenic dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems.
- Assessment of resource and ecological potential of forest ecosystems.
- Concept for preservation and sustainable management of Northern Eurasia’s terrestrial ecosystems under global changes.
