Forest Type Classification in Poyang Lake Basin Based on Multi-source Data Fusion

Part of the Terrestrial Environmental Sciences book series (TERENVSC)


Forests are among the most biologically-diverse and largest terrestrial ecosystems on Earth (Pan et al Annu Rev Ecol Evol Syst 44:593–622, 2013)[1]. They play an important role in global carbon and hydrological cycles and provide a wide range of valuable ecosystem goods and services, such as food, timber and climate moderation (Masek et al Forest Ecol Manag 355:109–123, 2015) [2], Mckinley et al Ecol Appl 21(6):1902–1924, 2011) [3].
