ALTERFOR Project Diary is a continuous multimedial documentation of actor-oriented research activities.
The third ALTERFOR film “Modelling - Part II: Simulation” is available online.
This film shows how chances and risks of alternative silvicultural concepts are calculated and visualised using SILVA, a forest growth simulator. SILVA was developed at the Chair of Forest Yield Science of Technical University of Munich.
The second ALTERFOR film “Modelling – Part I: Research Plot” is available online
ALTERFOR researchers Dr. Peter Biber (Case Study Coordinator Germany), Werner Poschenrieder (Forest Ecosystem Modeller) and Fabian Schwaiger (Silvicultural Scenario Analyst), all working at the Technical University of Munich, demonstrate measurements on the research plot “Freising 813” (Bavaria, Germany) with spruce and beech (the main tree species in this area).
The first ALTERFOR film “Actor Analysis – Observations” is now available online.
ALTERFOR scientist Dr. Nataly Jürges (Georg-August University Göttingen) explains the main steps of the actor analysis in the project. In addition, two actors from the case study area “Lieberose/Schlaubetal” in Brandeburg, Germany - Arne Barkhausen (Landesbetrieb Forst Brandenburg) and Jenny Eisenschmidt (Brandenburg Wilderness Foundation) highlight practitioners´ current needs and potential benefits that they expect from the research results.
