CNPF experiments database

The CNPF has been conducting experiments in private forests for more than 50 years to evaluate silvicultural techniques, compare species, and test silviculture in a variety of soil and climate conditions.

The data from these devices are consolidated in a single national database called ILEX. This database includes both complex devices and simple references. All information concerning the setting up and monitoring of the experiments is stored, as well as all information potentially useful for understanding the results that may be obtained later. Thus, all the information on the location of the site, on the description of the site (topography, soil, flora, ...), on the experimental design are recorded. All the individual measurements can be stored, regardless of the variables measured. In the same way, the description of the plantations, the soil work, but also the silvicultural work are described and dated. Finally, a diary of the adversity suffered by the device is kept in order to better identify any possible interference with the performance measured.

In order to facilitate the management of all the tests, a site manager and a monitoring status is assigned for each device. All tests are classified according to different topics and different networks.  ILEX as a management tool therefore makes it possible to store the data, share them within the CNPF, and monitor the results of the devices through results tables and graphs.



Database of INRAE forest experimental facilities

The GIDE database (Gestion Informatisée des Dispositifs Expérimentaux) is a data base designed to list all long-term forestry experimental trials. The GIDE database provides a view of the main metadata of each facility. This database has restricted access. It will be used to contribute to the In-Sylva France information system.
