  • Rockfall hazard and risk assessment on forested slopes, examples from Czechia
  • Czech Republic ; Forest ; Landslide ; Methodology ; Natural hazards ; Preventive measure ; Rockfall ; Slope
  • Rockfall hazard is assessed using Rockfor.net, which is one dimensional tool for assessing the protective function of forests against rockfall. Three sites where chosen to test the tool with different morphological and forest conditions. For each
  • site, it was evaluated how the boulder size and forest composition affects the probability of the rocks to surpass the forested slope. - (EN)

  • Use of 3D process-based model to determine forests protecting against rockfall - case study Kamniška Bistrica
  • Environmental management ; Forest ; Geographical information system ; Natural hazards ; Rockfall ; Slovenia ; Thematic mapping ; Vulnerability
  • This case study of the Kamniška Bistrica forest management unit presents a 3D process-based model for determining forests protecting against rockfall. The finished map of protective forests was compared with the map of the protective functions
  • of forests, made by the Slovenia Forest Service. Taking into consideration the entire forest area in the forest management unit, the maps match in 48% of cases. The differences appear predominantly in higher altitudes where the protective function map

  • In this paper the intense land-use changes in the Karst region and the surrounding karst areas is presented. People first thoroughly cleared the previously forested landscape, and then in the nineteenth century planned reforestation began. After
  • the Second World War uncontrolled afforestation predominated. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, predominantly low-quality forest already covered two-thirds of the Karst region. - (IKR)

  • Forestry in Ireland: An examination of individuals’ preferences and attitudes towards the non-market benefits of forests
  • In addition to their importance for timber production, Ireland’s forests represent a multi-faceted resource that enhances the environment, promotes biodiversity, sequesters atmospheric carbon and facilitates recreational activity. Within
  • this context, the overall aim of this paper is to examine some of the non-market - or rather non-timber production related - benefits of forests. Forestry investment has been identified as a means of promoting economic development in rural areas. The survey
  • results presented here suggest that there are likely to be substantial public good benefits to the promotion of the forestry sector. More specifically, given the frequency of visits nationally, forest parks are shown to be a recreational resource which
  • is highly valued by the general public. Results suggest, however, that individuals are not a homogeneous group with regard to their use of forest parks as there are significant differences between likely users and non-users. In terms of visual amenity
  • , the general public rated forest landscape elements quite highly relative to a variety of other landscape elements. For the most part, those surveyed did not feel that too much of the country’s land area was currently in forestry use. Finally, respondents held

  • Budgeting soil erosion from floodplain and alluvial fan sediments in the western Palatinate Forest (Pfälzerwald, Germany)
  • Alluvial cone ; C 14 dating ; Erosion budget ; Floodplain ; Forest ; Germany ; Land use ; Palatinate ; Pollen analysis ; Soil erosion ; Stratigraphy ; Watershed
  • The catchment selected is that of the Schwarzbach in the western Palatinate Forest. Its Holocene floodplain and those of its tributaries were studied in detail at several sites, the focus being on the thickness, characteristics and age
  • to the settlement history of the western Palatinate forest. By comparison with similar small Upland catchments, the erosion rates of the Schwarzbach valley are low. This may be explained by the reduced suitability of the Palatinate Forest for agriculture
  • , and consequently a later onset of forest clearing, mostly followed by merely extensive land use.

  • This research presents the analysis of rates and patterns of land cover change in Pando, northern Bolivia. Using a decision tree classifier, five forest/non-forest (FNF) classifications were created for 1986, 1991, 1996, 2000, and 2005 from 40
  • Landsat images that were preprocessed and mosaicked. FNF trajectory images were created for each date pair to indicate areas of stable forest and non-forest, and areas and rates of de/reforestation. Multiple non-linear relationships exist between
  • the fragmentation metrics and distance from road. The results have implications for understanding and managing the spatial contiguity of these forests, which provide valuable ecological services as well as the livelihood base for many inhabitants.

  • In a study in wet eucalypt forests burnt by wildfire, phosphorus concentration on mineral sediment and organic material at the point (0.01 m2), plot (1–10 m2) and catchment (106 m2) was used to estimate enrichment ratios (ERs) over 2 scales
