Harmonisation of National Forest Inventories in Europe: Techniques for Common Reporting

STRUCTURE AND PARTICIPANTS

Workgroup 3

Harmonised indicators and estimation procedures for assessing components of biodiversity with NFI data


Leader:Prof. Gherardo Chirici, Italy
Deputy leader:Dr. Susanne Winter, Germany
Work Plan:here (timetable)

The main task of workgroup 3 is to identify possibilities of measuring components of biodiversity in the context of large area forest inventories in such a way that the results are comparable over vegetation zones. Biodiversity is commonly divided into genetic, species and ecosystem diversity as well as functional diversity. The key components by ecosystems and vegetation zones will be identified. Harmonised definitions and measurement practices will be sought.

The state-of-the-art questionnaire
