Multilayer landscape classification based on potential vegetation - new publication
Vegetation-based landscape classifications reflecting combinations of different types of vegetation promote the understanding of landscape patterns and ecological restoration. However, widespread landscape classifications containing a single thematic resolution may oversimplify landscape patterns. A new scientific paper published in the prestigeous ecological journal 'Preslia' (Q1, IF = 2.233) provides a solution for formalized landscape classification, relying on the landscape’s full vegetation potential, i.e. on multiple potential vegetation (MPV). The research was led by Krisztina Dóra Konrád, PhD student at the Department of Plant Systematics, Ecology and Theoretical Biology of ELTE. Among others Ákos Bede-Fazekas, senior lecturer of our department, also participated in the research.
