The purpose of this investigation was to develop a method to determine the spatial pattern of trees as a robust indicator to monitor changes from B&W aerial photographs in Persian oak forests of Zagros, Iran. A 500 x 600 m study area was selected in Servak forests next to Yasuj city in Kohgiluyeh-Va-BuyerAhmad Province. All the trees were tagged in the(More)
Hyrcania is a productive region near the southern coast of Caspian Sea. Her forests are mostly uneven-aged beach-dominated hardwood mixtures. There is increasing willingness to treat these forests without clear-felling, following the ideas of continuous cover management. However, lack of growth and yield models have delayed this endeavor, and no(More)
The importance of measuring biophysical properties of forest for ecosystem health monitoring and forest management encourages researchers to find precise, yet low-cost methods especially in mountainous and large area. In the present study Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) on board ICESat was used to estimate three biophysical characteristics of(More)
Nacrtak Allometric relationships for estimating the biomass of the crown of Lebanon oak (Quercus libani Oliv.) have been developed through using biometric parameters such as the diameter at breast height, tree height, crown length, and crown width. The study was conducted in Ar­ mardeh forests in Iran’s northern Zagros mountains; for a long time the local(More)
We examined the local community incentive programs to improve traditional forest management in three forested villages in Baneh city, Kurdistan province in the northern Zagros forests of western Iran. Zagros forests cover 6.07 million ha and support rich plant and animal diversity. Changes in local community social and economic systems and the inefficiency(More)
Since Lidar technology provides the most direct measurements of 3D of phenomena, it plays a critical role in a variety of applications. Forest canopy height as a main factor in forest biomass estimation is costly and time consuming to be measured on the ground. This study aims to estimate Lorey’s height “Hlorey” using GLAS data based on regression models.(More)
