Database of Czech Forest Classification System
Keywords: Czech Republic; Forest Site Classification.
Abstract: The Database of the Czech Forest Site Classification System (DCFCS; GIVD ID EU-CZ-002) is focused on data about ecological conditions and structure of forest ecosystems in the territory of the Czech Republic. This database is managed by Forest Management Institute Brandýs nad Labem. DCFCS consists of two parts, the numeric database and the GIS data. The numeric database includes all descriptive data of sample plots used in classification. Each plot is characterized by features of ecotope (information about geomorphology, climate, pedology etc.) and vegetation data (information on composition and structure). Maps of site types with the position of sample plots are represented as GIS data.
