Final Mean Species Abundance map of the remaining biodiversity in Ukraine (2000): Mean MSA value – 32.4% (0,324407296).Revised methodology was applied (by GIS modular with combined LU classes application; http://biomodel.info/?p=103). Final map image looks very similar to Landuse MSA. Obviously landuse is the dominant pressure causing the biodiversity loss process.

LU MSA map (new version) During the ‘GIS modular’ manual compilation new LU MSA (biodiversity loss from land use; picture above) was calculated. More details available because of a new approach: http://biomodel.info/?p=103 . You can compare the new LU MSA with LU MSA from previous run (picture below). LU MSA map (previous version)

Combined GLOBIO3 and 'land use' classes

0 by / on Thursday January 17th, 2008, 02:50 PM / in Bd Training Package

Different GLOBIO3 land use classes combination was applied taking into account location of agrolandscapes in different ‘nature-ag-zone’. For instance agrolandscapes within ‘Polissya’ nature-ag-zone include several LCC i.e. ‘extensive agriculture’ and ‘agro-forestry’ in equal part approximately. Logically, for the ‘Steppe zone’ it is advisable to take into account (for the modelling) up to 80% of the ‘extensive ag’ and respectively 20% […]
