|Harmonisation of National Forest Inventories in Europe: Techniques for Common Reporting|
STRUCTURE AND PARTICIPANTS
Harmonised Definitions and Measuring Practices
The main task of the workgroup is to give operative guidelines for the interpretation of existing definitions and find recommendations on new definitions and measuring practices to be applied in NFIs. This will form the crucial part of NFI methodology. Inventory designs, e.g., sampling based inventory vs. stand level inventory, inventory frequencies, data collection methods and analyses will be considered.
