Dr. Ramon Elena-Rosselló is Professor in Forest Ecology, of the Department of Silvopascicultura of the School of Forest and Natural Environment Engineering (EIFORNAT-UPM) at Polytechnical University of Madrid. His Academic Background is Forest Engineer (UPM) in 1977. He got his Ph.D. in 1982.
His fields of expertise are Forest Ecology,
Forest Climatology, Landscape Ecology and Land Classification and Evaluation
for Forestry Purposes. He has been Research Fellow at the Department of Ecology
(National Institute for Agrarian Research-INIA)
His research activity is mainly devoted to Forest Ecology and Climatology, Landscape Ecology, Biogeoclimatic Land Modelling and Forest Site Ecological Assessment. After his Doctoral thesis devoted to Forest Climate Classification of the Duero Bassin, he has been working in the next topics financially supported throughout National and European competitive research projects: Parametric Autoecology of Spanish Forest Tree Species (Black pine, Cork oak, Chesnut tree, Beech tree); Biogeoclimatic Land Classification (Navarre, CLATERES); European Correlation of Forest Site Classification Systems, Spanish Rural Landscape Monitoring (SISPARES); Landscape Ecology applied to Forest Management at district level (ECOPORF); Natura 2000 monitoring through remote sensing technology at European scale (ENVIP-nature); European framework for Biodiversity assessment and monitoring (BIOHAB); European Biodiversity Observation Network, EBONE; and Forest landscape connectivity monitoring (DECOFOR).
He has 123 publications: Author of 16 Books, 14 Book chapters (
