This book provides detailed descriptions of the forest biomass projection systems used in 22 countries in Europe and North America, as well as four European-wide systems. Separate chapters focus on the concepts of estimation of availability of woody biomass, compare and classify the different projection systems, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the further development of these systems.

The book presents the current state and good practices of national forest inventories in monitoring wood resources and demonstrates pathways for harmonisation and improved common reporting. Beyond a general overview over availability and use of wood resources in different countries, it provides a unique collection of original contributions from national forest inventory experts with in-depth descriptions of current NFI methods in assessing wood availability and wood use in European countries, and selected countries from America and Asia.The main topics are national definitions and improvements in common reporting of forests available for wood supply, stem quality and assortments, estimation of change including growth and drain, and tree resources outside forest land. The book is a must-have for everyone who is contributing to national forest inventories either methodologically or operatively, for people who want or need to understand national forest inventory provided data and information on the availability of wood resources. By providing profound knowledge it is a valuable basis for scientists involved in scenario modelling and analysing effects of climate change, as well as individuals in private organisations and public administrations promoting the sustainable use of natural resources and the potential of green economy.

Klimaanpassung in Forschung und Politik

Author: Andreas Marx

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

Dieses Buch präsentiert das Themenfeld Anpassung an den Klimawandel erstmals aus unterschiedlichen, disziplinären Sichtweisen – von der Ökonomie über Geographie und Rechtswissenschaft bis hin zu Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie. Darüber hinaus werden Vulnerabilität und Resilienz sowie Indikatoren und Leitfäden für die Anpassung diskutiert. Konkrete Beispiele aus der urbanen Anpassung und dem Komplex Klimaschutz/Anpassung/Ökosystemdienstleistungen runden die Thematik ab. Erkenntnisse über die Anpassung an den Klimawandel haben nach der gesellschaftlichen Diskussion längst auch Entscheidungsträger auf europäischer sowie kommunaler Ebene erreicht. Das Buch behandelt das Thema Anpassung auf diesen unterschiedlichen Ebenen. Vor allem auf der lokalen Entscheidungsebene liegen bis heute wenig wissenschaftlich gesicherte Daten zu Klimawandel und seinen Auswirkungen vor. Das Buch zeigt, dass und warum Handeln unter Unsicherheit, das Arbeiten mit Szenarien oder das Zusammenführen von natur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Informationen auf der Tagesordnung der Anpassungsforschung und -politik stehen.
