У Німеччині соснові ліси займають понад 2,4 млн га, що становить 22,3 % від площі ділянок, вкритих лісовою рослинністю. Найпоширенішими соснові ліси є у північно-східній частині країни. Серед них домінують похідні деревостани, тому лісівники Німеччини впродовж останніх десятиліть широко застосовують у них рубки переформування, що передбачають посту...

The EU Water Framework Directive aims to ensure restoration of Europe’s water bodies to “good ecological status” by 2027. Many Member States will struggle to meet this target, with around half of EU river catchments currently reporting below standard water quality. Diffuse pollution from agriculture represents a major pressure, affecting over 90% o...

In the upper elevations of the Ukrainian Carpathians, Swiss stone pine (Pinus cembra L.) exibits high coenotic stability on relatively poor edaphic forest sites, so called «B»or subir edatopes (see Appendix A) as well as on sites that transition to the relatively rich edaphic forest sites, so called «C» or suhrud edatopes. On these forest sites, mi...

Using data from 16 meteorological stations we have analysed the frequency and intensity of storms (20 m/s) in the Ukrainian Carpathians from 1945 to 1999. 6631 storms were recorded in this region, 60 percent of them at mountain tops. The number of storms at each station varied greatly from one year to the other. In 1996 an annual maximum of 52 sto...

A network initiative to link ring-width measurements with satellite-borne earth observations. The TREOS initiative aims to establish a new tree ring research network to explore the possibilities of interpolating tree growth at mesic sites in Central Europe using the latest high-resolution satellite data. In recent decades, satellite imagery has developed rapidly and now provides open access to time series with high temporal and spatial resolution. Earth observations by satellites (EOS) can be related to radial growth of trees if field calibration is performed, which could then support upscaling of tree growth from individual trees to site and landscape levels. Statistical relationships between EOS and tree rings are commonly studied in alpine and boreal forests, where individual growth factors often determine growth. However, at mesic sites in temperate climates, tree growth is limited by multiple factors, and the relationship between EOS and tree growth remains challenging. We hypothesize that at mesic sites, additional site descriptors such as elevation, slope, and forest characteristics play an important role in explaining tree growth. In addition, the application of machine learning algorithms and the use of higher resolution satellite data could increase the predictive accuracy of already established models. However, to train appropriate algorithms, regional to continental tree ring networks covering recent years are needed to allow for a sufficiently large sample size over the entire observation period of the main satellite missions, such as Landsat 8 (since 2013) and Sentinel 2 (since 2015). We therefore invite researchers to participate in our TREOS initiative by sampling and/or providing tree ring data from Central Europe and altitudes below 1200 m that have been collected in October 2018 or a more recent period. Based on the network, we aim to improve our understanding of the robustness and uncertainty of the link between EOS and secondary tree growth of conifers and broadleaves, and to generate appropriate transfer functions.

Conversion of existing secondary pure stands of the same age (e.g. red oak, hornbeam, pine, beech stands) into mixed, uneven-aged forests. Permanent experimental plots are being established in the Lviv and Stradch forest enterprises. These plots will later be used for practical seminars and excursions for students and foresters.
