Innovative soil conditioners and mulches improve mountain forestation

A recent study published in Forest Systems journal discusses the interest of innovative planting techniques (soil conditioners and mulches) to improve the early performance of forestation in mountain conditions. The authors conducted a field experiment in upper montane conditions (1,400 m) in the southern Pyrenees (NE Spain), planted with mountain ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.). Some …

From field work to AI: Machine learning can change the way for clasifying forests

An innovative work published in Forest systems journal shows the eficacy of machine learning for clasifying forests using remote sensing data. Authors developed a case study in Monteverde forests of Tenerife (Canary islands, Spain), an ancient ecosystems with a high level of protection due to its relictic flora and sensitivity to environmental change. As authors …
