  • Relating aerial erosion, soil erosion and sub-soil erosion to the evolution of Lunan Stone forest, China
  • Stone forest is a unique karst landform with a complex evolution process. This paper will focus on stone pillars, the basic component of stone forest, analyse different combinations of sub-aerial, soil, and sub-soil erosion in Lunan Stone Forest
  • area, and propose a Triplex erosion mechanism for stone forest evolution.

  • Bibliography ; Biodiversity ; Biogeography ; Ecosystem ; Forest-savanna transition ; Phenology ; Savanna ; Tropical zone ; Vegetation dynamics
  • This review (2002-2006) concentrates upon research relating to plant ecology, examining issues of diversity, boundaries and equilibrium theories, and studies of individual species of tropical savannas and associated forests.

  • Between 1994 and 2006, winter storm waves exposed more than 4.5 km2 of late-Holocene forest soil on shore platforms at 19 localities of the Oregon coast. Once exposed, wave action eroded the soil rapidly (1 to 2 years). The intact forest soil
  • and roots on the shore platforms must have been nearly continuously buried, protected and preserved prior to recent exposure. This late-Holocene buried forest provides the basis for a conceptual model of coastal evolution : a three stage reversal of erosion

  • Urban forest in Jinan City : distribution, classification and ecological significance
  • Applied ecology ; China ; Forest ; Green space ; LANDSAT ; Remote sensing ; SPOT ; Shandong ; Spatial analysis ; Urban area
  • This paper applied remote sensing method in the study of urban forest in Jinan City. Results show that there are various kinds of greenbelts in Jinan City, including public greenbelt, residential greenbelt, greenbelt attached to branches, protective
  • greenbelt in production, landscape forest and road greenbelt. Using the remote sensing investigation, the AA. divided the suburban forest into 7 classes. Suggestions to improve urban forest in Jinan City are given : increasing the number of greenbelt

  • The AA. used GIS to compare past land-use/land-cover information from General Land Office (GLO) surveys taken in 1849/1851 with current forest composition to illustrate the extensive changes that have occurred in bottomland hardwood forest
  • composition over the past 150 years in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana. Agricultural lands, hardwood wetlands, and urban lands increased in area at the expense of rangelands and swamplands. Without conservation efforts, bottomland hardwood forests

  • This study tested the potential of LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) images for mapping old landslides under forest. Landslide inventory maps were created for a 125 km2 area by applying the expert knowledge of 7 geomorphologists to LIDAR-derived

  • The study area is part of the Belgian loess belt and is located south of Leuven. The objectives of this study are : to determine the spatial distribution of closed depressions (CDs) within an ancient forest area and under cropland; to determine
  • and compare the morphological characteristics of CDs under forest and under cropland; to deteermine the origin and age of a representative CD under forest.

  • Andes ; Biogeography ; Ecosystem ; Forest ; Mountain
  • Polylepis forests in the Andes, of fragmental distribution, house a great diversity of flora species and an extraordinary and unique fauna in mountain ecosystems in altitudes above 3500 m. Studies on these forests proved the existence of more than
  • twenty Polylepis species in the Andes. As these forests are within a protected area, with minimal human impact, we must ask whether there is any relationship between the retreat of glaciers and the movement of the limit of Polylepis forests

  • Biogeography ; Forecast ; Forest ; National park ; Nature reserve ; Poland ; Region
  • The primary scientific objective of the research here presented is : to identify in detail the tendencies of changes in forest associations in the particular regions of the country ; to explain - or at least to formulate the relevant hypotheses
  • - what extremal factors are responsible for the changes taking place in forest associations ; to forecast the transformations of the forest associations in particular regions in the future. The practical objective is to accumulate the prerequisites
  • for the determination of the recommendations as to the renaturalisation of forests, with special consideration of national parks and nature reserves. - (BJ)

  • Junipers mark the northwestern distribution limit of forests on the Tibetan plateau towards the central Asian steppes. They are a light-demanding, but drought-tolerant and cold-resistant tree species. In the more humid regions of eastern Tibet where
  • other conifer species from the genera Pica, Abies or Larix occur junipers are confined to south slopes. However, when other tree species are removed or absent due to other reasons, junipers occur on all exposures. In the forest-steppe ecotones they form
