EU-Forest, a high-resolution tree occurrence dataset for Europe [Scientific Data]

Keywords : climate change, ecology, forestry, palaeoclimate, plant ecology

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

We present EU-Forest, a dataset that integrates and extends by almost one order of magnitude the publicly available information on European tree species distribution. The core of our dataset ( 96% of the occurrence records) came from an unpublished, large database harmonising forest plot surveys from National Forest Inventories on an INSPIRE-compliant 1 km×1 km grid. These new data can potentially benefit several disciplines, including forestry, biodiversity conservation, palaeoecology, plant ecology, the bioeconomy, and pest management.
