This dataset series shows the distribution map (raster format: geotiff) of Abies spp. (whole genus Abies, i.e. all observed species in that genus).
The distribution map is provided for Europe (EU28 plus part of other countries within the spatial extent), computed using the FISE harmonised European dataset of taxa presence/absence (based on the integration and harmonisation of the datasets by European National Forestry Inventories; BioSoil; Forest Focus/Monitoring; EUFGIS; GeneticDiversity). The distribution is estimated by means of statistical interpolation (Constrained Spatial Multi-Frequency Analysis, C-SMFA). Available years: 2006. The maps are available in the Forest Information System for Europe (FISE). FISE is run by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre. See the field Lineage for further information.
