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.

Inventory designs, e.g., sampling based inventory vs. stand level inventory, inventory frequencies, data collection methods and analyses will be considered.
