Temporal dimension of forest vulnerability to fire along successional trajectories

Understanding ecosystem vulnerability is essential in risk management to anticipate disasters. While valuable efforts have been made to characterize vulnerability components (exposure, sensitivity, and response capacity) at particular ecosystem …

Community trajectory analysis

Ecologists have long been interested in how communities change over time. Addressing questions about community dynamics requires ways of representing and comparing the variety of dynamics observed across space. Our perspective considers community …

Classification of forest stands

Forest typologies are useful for many purposes, including forest mapping, assessing habitat quality, studying forest dynamics, or defining sustainable management strategies. In this article, we present a general framework to define forest typologies …

Forest beta diversity and dynamics

Develop tools for assessing spatial and temporal variation of forests in structure and composition

Indicator species analysis

To improve statical methods to determine indicator species

Vegetation classification

Conceptual and quantitative tools for the creation and maintenance of classifications

A comparative framework for vegetation classification

Classification of vegetation is an essential tool to describe, understand, predict and manage biodiversity. Given the multiplicity of approaches to classify vegetation, it is important to develop international consensus around a set of general …
