Project collaborators started to pinpoint exact location of of LIFE SySTEMiC research plots at sites, previously determined from remote sensing and forest stand data. During first stage, location of plots will be determined on the basis of projects needs. During second stage, complete inventorisation of trees at the plots will be conducted. For each chosen forest stand, management history will be reconstructed as detailed as possible.

LIFE project SySTEMiC has two main objectives:

  • To identify the best silviculture practice to preserve forest resilience in relation to climate change;
  • To develop a tool to support sustainable forest management combining landscape genetics with forest inventory data.
