FFI (FEAT/FIREMON Integrated) is an ecological monitoring system designed to assist managers with collection, storage and analysis of plot level ecological information. It includes a large selection of standard sampling protocols and supports user defined methods. It supports scalable (project to landscape scale) monitoring at the field and research level, and encourages cooperative, interagency data management and information sharing.
The presentation will include a background and description of the system, a live demonstration of the database application, and answers to questions from participants.
