A week in August 2020, GEco'ers and a few guests met in Iškoras, Karasjok (Kárášjohka), combining science with learning and teambuilding.
A new paper is now available in Applied Vegetation Science: Peter Horvath, Rune Halvorsen, Frode Stordal, Lena M. Tallaksen, Hui Tang and Anders Bryn authored the paper titled "Distribution modelling of vegetation types based on area‐frame survey data".
A new paper on error estimation in field assignment of land-cover types using the NiN system is now available. Based on the master thesis of Eriksen, the paper was authored by Eva L. Eriksen, Heidrun A. Ullerud, Rune Halvorsen, Sigrun Aune, Harald Bratli, Peter Horvath, Inger K. Volden, Anders K. Wollan and Anders Bryn.
This summer, Hilde Riksheim Tandstad defended her MSC thesis: "Vegetation-environment analysis of the transition between avalanche meadows and semi-natural grasslands in Nærøyfjorden, Western Norway". Her work points to gaps in the NiN system that should be addressed in revisions of NiN.
One of our students recently defended her MSC thesis, "A new method to quantify the accuracy of classification and spatial delineation in land cover maps". The method she developed is already being used by the GEco group to train students in vegetation mapping (BIO4120).
