Relationship between physical forest characteristics, visual attractiveness and perception of ecosystem services in urban forests


This questionnaire survey was conducted as an online survey and aimed at investigating the relationship between physical forest characteristics, visual attractiveness of forest and the perception of ecological and cultural ecosystem services in urban forests. Each participant was shown 6 photos out of a pool of 50 photos taken from the Swiss National Forest Inventory (NFI) database. Physical forest characteristics were derived from the photos. The study was conducted as part of the "WaMos meets LFI" (WML) project.
