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.

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% […]
