the "Pallas-Ylläs" project
The mean goal of the project is to study the multiple use and biodiversity issues in the Pallas-Yllästunturi nature park and the areas nearby it.
The project studies the keystones and objectives that the whole park idea is built on: the needs for nature-based tourism,
nature protection, recreational use, and reindeer herding. The significance of the study is to determine the links between
different tasks set on the land use and to create the criteria for the sustainable land use. The natural processes,
like forest fires have also a cultural dimension. The study focuses also on the neighbouring areas and their land uses,
which have a great impact on the natural park itself.
We focus here only in the dendroclimatic part of the project, coded as project ID 3395-02.
