About this book

Focuses on the integration of spatial statistics, GIS-technology, ecosystem studies, and scenario modelling. Its main aim is to extend the information gained at the stand level to larger spatial scales. The studies demonstrate the potential and limitations of regionalization approaches for forest ecological variables and the results provide valuable spatial information for forest managers and landscape planners as well as for policy-makers.


From the contents: Abstract.- Introduction.- Study areas and basic data.- Statistical methods for regionalization of ecological state variables.- Spatial prediction of climate, soil, and macrofauna.- Spatial models for site evolution and forest planning.- GIS based investigations of effects of the LOWE program in the Harz mountains.
