The Network of Reference Stands brings together a set of stands representative of the most natural situations for most of the forest Habitats of Community Interest present in Spain.
Among other applications, these stands can be used to determine the conservation status of forest habitats, or serve as a model for a forestry with biodiversity conservation objectives.
Access to the database is done through the REDBOSQUES tool, which allows:
- Visualize the location of the stands, both those in the prospecting phase (phase I) and in the identification phase (phase II).
- Consult the global values of the maturity indices, human footprint and spatial integrity for each stand (by clicking on each stand).
- Compare the characteristics of each stand with the reference stands corresponding to that habitat, with detailed information for each criterion and indicators of maturity, human footprint and spatial integrity.
- Compare the characteristics of a stand with the values of the National Forest Inventory (IFN3) corresponding to that habitat, with detailed information for each criterion and maturity indicators.
The network is built collaboratively. If you want to provide information of relevance to the network of stands, you can contact through firstname.lastname@example.org.
