Figure S1. Maps of the survey area in western Canada showing (a) the satellite-based land cover classification for the survey area and (b) the location of flight lines for the aerial survey of aspen dieback.
Table S1. Area of EOSD land cover types found in the total survey area and in each of the boreal and parkland zones. Values in parentheses give the area of each cover type as a percentage of the respective total area or zone.
Table S2. Aerial survey mapped dieback areas (ha) in the total survey area and in each of the boreal and parkland zones after the application of the EOSD land cover classification mask (broadleaf classes only). Values in parentheses give the area mapped in each dieback class as a percentage of total broadleaf forest area.
Table S3. Ground-based mean interpolated values of percent dead biomass (%DEAD) for the aerially mapped areas in each category of dieback severity.
Table S4. Mean stand-level estimates (with SE in parentheses) of total, live and dead biomass density in the boreal and parkland zones within the survey area, calculated from plot-based measurements in a total of 86 aspen stands (18 CIPHA long-term stands and 68 randomly selected temporary stands). Estimates of %DEAD for each zone are calculated from mean dead biomass and mean total biomass.
Table S5. Total estimated quantity of live, dead and total broadleaf forest biomass in the survey area based on two methods for spatial scaling of plot-based measurements.
