Map of montane cloud forest in Taiwan

Martin Schulz
Map of montane cloud forest in Taiwan derived from MODIS based ground fog frequency data, ASTER GDEM 2 and Landsat 7 data.

Resolution: 250 m per pixel

The map was created as described in
Schulz, H.M., Li, C.F., Chang, S.C., Thies, B., and Bendix J.: Mapping the montane cloud forest of Taiwan using 12 year MODIS-derived ground fog frequency data, PLOS ONE, manuscript submitted for publication.

TMF Newsletter, Issue: 17

The Newsletter presents a summary of five years of research (Speakers’ Corner) and provides insight in latest results of the nutrient addition experiments, the competition between bracken and pasture grass, mycorrhization, climate change research and recent modelings, the advances of the data warehouse and the Laser Scanning Mission as well as achievements in afforestation experiments (Science News). This issue also informs about recent progress of the foundation NCI, the status of the two transfer projects...

MRp|SE Newsletter, Issue: 1

The first MRp|SE Newsletter offers research and knowledge transfer results: The test of models for small scale plant distributions shows the advantages of ensemble approaches. This result as well as a new method to analyze canopy evapotranspriation and leaf photosynthesis were awarded with poster prizes. A medical technique helps to study wood anatomy. In contrast to previous data the analysis of fertilized phosphorus revealed that it is not only retained in above-ground biomass and the...

Fog frequencies in Europe (monthly means)

Sebastian Egli
This dataset contains monthly average fog frequencies for Europe.

Arctiidae 1999-2005 (species-site matrix)

Konrad Fiedler
Data from PHD-theses of Dirk Süßenbach and Nadine Hilt and diploma thesis of Manuela Zimmermann. For further information see references cited with the main dataset (list of specimens).

Monthly ground fog frequency maps for Taiwan (2003-2014).

Martin Schulz
Ground fog masks were created from MODIS data from 2003 to 2014 using the method DOGMA. From those masks the ground fog frequency was calculated for each month separately.

ECSF Climate station best estimate Ver. 2

Ruetger Rollenbeck, Thorsten Peters, Paul Emck & Michael Richter
Quality assessment ECSF climate station hourly data: Version 2; Dataset supersedes ver. 1 which is left for reference. Please be aware, that aggregated values may be wrong, due to the data gaps. This is especcially critical for precipitation. Variables: Ta2m =Air Temperature at 2 m (T) PCP = Precipitation at 1 m (P) Huma_2m = relative humidity at 2m (rH) Irradiation = global radiation at 2 m (gRad), widspeed. Emitted radiation, wind direction and soil-temperatures...

TMF Newsletter, Issue: 18

The speakers give a glimpse on the complex on-site review procedure of the projects which constitute the German part of the new Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Monitoring and Research in South Ecuador. They also report about the Status Symposium which enjoyed a numerous audience. NCI reports about the application to the UNESCO for the first biosphere reserve in the Ecuadorian Western Cordillera comprising the entire ecological gradient from the Paramo to the Pacific. The...

TMF Newsletter, Issue: 19

20 groups of scientists representing a multitude of scientific disciplines summarize major results of their research in this last issue of the TMF Newsletter: They report about science-directed and sustainable land-use systems and present protocols for optimization of sustainable forest and pasture management. Specific reactions of species and of the ecosystem tropical mountain forest (TMF) to increasing loads of nutrient input are shown. The researchers also summarize effects of altered precipitation and temperatures on nitrogen...

Landscape Restoration, Sustainable Land Use and Cross-scale Monitoring of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions. A Science-directed Approach for South Ecuador

Erwin Beck, Thomas Knoke, Nina Farwig, Lutz Breuer, David Siddons & Jörg Bendix
In 201 3, the “Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem
Monitoring and Research in South Ecuador”
(www.TropicalMountainForest.org) was launched as a
knowledge transfer program in the biodiversity
hotspot of the southern Ecuadorian Andes, jointly
funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG)
and Ecuadorian non-university partners. One of the
overall aims of the transdisciplinary program is to
design science-directed recommendations for an
ecologically sustainable, economically profitable and
socially compatible use of the mainly rural land. The
second...
