Participatory modelling of community forest landscape

Posted by on 2021-12-23

FLORES, the Forest Land Oriented Resurce Envisioning System, is a framework to facilitate quantitative modelling of ecological, economic and social issues at the landscape scale. This special issue of journal describes the evolution of FLORES from a concept to a series of models calibrated for diverse locations, and documents lessons…

Modeling carbon sequestration in afforestation and forest magement projects: the CO2FIX V 2.0 approach

Posted by on 2021-12-23

The paper describes the Version 2 of the CO2FIX (CO2FIX V.2) model, a user-friendly tool for dynamically estimating the carbon sequestration potential of forest management, agroforesty and afforestation projects. CO2FIX V.2 is a multi-cohort ecosystem-level model based on carbon accounting of forest stands, including forest biomass, soils and products. Carbon…

Governing forest plantation to reduce poverty and improve forest landscape: a multiagent simulation approach

Posted by on 2021-12-23

Good forest governance lets all relevant stakeholders participate in the decision-making processes. Illegal logging and forest degradation are currently increasing, and logging bans are ineffective in reducing forest degradation. At the same time interest in forest plantations and concern about poverty problems of people adjacent to forests continue to increase…

Extensions of the Bartlett-Lewis model for rainfall processes

Posted by on 2021-12-23

While the berlett-Lewis model has been widely used for modelling rainfall processes at a fixed point in space over time, there are observed features, such as longer-scale dependence, which are not well fitted by the model. In this paper is a study of an extension where the authors put an…
