Scientific position

Scientific position and interactions with other infrastructures

IN-SYLVA-France is positioned between forest inventory structures and the network of heavily-instrumented in situ experimental sites organized at the national level by research institutes and Allenvi, and which are listed on the ESFRI road map (see figure below).

IN-SYLVA-France’s scientific domain (forest sciences), objectives (studying interactions between forest practices, genotypes and the environment), field network (experimental forest sites) and sector of innovation (forest managers) distinguishes the structure from ANAEE-F (biotic/abiotic interactions), ICOS(greenhouse gases) and OZCAR (hydrological and biogeochemical functioning).

Close collaboration among these infrastructures is anticipated, through both the creation of indicators and modelisation, and through adopting a common corpus of data terminology and exchanging and standardising protocols

For the forest, the French Public Body ECOFOR could constitute the hub of these interactions among research infrastructures.
