Abstract

The scientific seminar, held during 27.–28.11.2007 in Vantaa, Finland, was attended by 45 researchers from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Russia and the UK who are participating in the EU/Forest Focus and UN-ECE/ICP Forests extensive and intensive forest monitoring programmes. The purpose of the meeting was to provide a forum where the researchers could present the results of the monitoring work and scientific studies carried out over the last two decades in northern Europe within the framework of the programmes. The presentations covered a wide range of topics including the optimization of techniques for monitoring carbon stocks and biodiversity in large-scale surveys, long-term changes in forest health, foliar, deposition and soil solution chemistry, carbon, nitrogen and nutrient fluxes in boreal forests, and nutrient and acidification processes in forest soils.
