Call for Submission of Manuscripts: Special Issue 'Modeling Aboveground Forest Biomass: New Developments'Contributions are invited for a special issue of the journal Forests, on the topic of 'Modeling Aboveground Forest Biomass: New Developments'. Forest biomass modelling is crucial to its monitoring and storage. However, biomass in stands and forests varies according to the species, stand structure and site. Biomass models can be developed using data obtained destructive sampling, forest inventory, remote sensing and ancillary. There is a wide range of data science methods and techniques currently applied in order to fit the models and evaluate their uncertainties. Biomass models can be utilized in order to produce management alternatives. This Special Issue aims to offer an overview of the various data sets and modelling methods currently employed to develop biomass functions, as well as their applicability at both the tree and area levels.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2023
Special issue editors: Prof. Ana Cristina Gonçalves; Prof. Dr. Teresa Fidalgo Fonseca
