- Chapter presents two national case studies for forest inventories in tropical countries: the Indian and Mexican national forest inventories. These national forest inventories have been use to report GHG inventories to the UNFCC. 3. Use of National Forest Inventories to downscale European forest diversity spatial information in five test areas, covering different geo-physical and geo-botanical conditions 4. Harmonizing National Forest Inventories in Europe 5. Development of harmonised Indicators and estimation procedures for forests with.
The EFI Forest Map of Europe (Gunia et al., ), which provides the percent forest cover at 1 km resolution, was selected as forest mask because it was calibrated with the NFI statistics on forest area. The EFI map was converted to a forest – non forest map by selecting the cells with predominance of forest cover (i.e., larger than 50%).Cited by: ENFIN serves a broad spectrum of forest related policies and therefore ENFIN aims at enhancing co-operation between national forest inventory organisations, especially to: provide a clearly visible platform for the provision of harmonised forest inventory information on European forests; promote knowledge-sharing, enhanced methods, and new.

Time as a Dimension of the Sample Design in National-Scale Forest Inventories Francis A. Roesch and Paul C.

Predictions of how the resource was changing were made by comparing differences between successiveCited by: 7.

Subject Group S Forest Resource Inventory.; International Union of Forestry Research Organizations. Despite its length, the book provides reasonably thorough coverage of the theory of statistics applied to forest inventories.
a very useful, up-to-date reference book on the theory of statistics as it should be applied to forest inventory. ―International Statistical Review, /5(1). The development of statistical inventory methods started at the beginning of the twentieth century, when the first regional and national forest inventories were performed in Finland and Norway.
Information on forest resources is also needed at wider continental scales, in view of the different international reporting processes that aim at orienting forest policies (FAO ; FOREST EUROPEKeenan et al.
).Here, the European space faces the basic reality and major difficulty that the NFIs have developed on national bases, with their own purposes Cited by: 2.
Geographical levels of forest inventory Forest inventories at local level: Forest information is required on different geographical levels. For forest stands, forest inventories are carried out to plan forest operations or to prepare selling standing timber.

Book Description. Sound forest management planning requires cost-efficient approaches to optimally utilize given resources. Emphasizing the mathematical and statistical features of forest sampling to assess classical dendrometrical quantities, Sampling Techniques for Forest Inventories presents the statistical concepts and tools needed to conduct a modern forest.
The increment estimation methods of European NFIs were explored by means of 12 essential NFI features. The results indicate various differences among NFIs within the commonly acknowledged methodological frame.
The perspectives for harmonisation at the European level are promising. The estimation of increment is implemented differently in Cited by: Forest inventory is the systematic collection of data and forest information for assessment or analysis.
An estimate of the value and possible uses of timber is an important part of the broader information required to sustain ecosystems. When taking forest inventory the following are important things to measure and note: species, diameter at breast height (DBH), height, site.
The overall objectives of ENFIN are to • provide a platform for the harmonisation of forest inventory information at European scale • optimise synergies between NFIs and promote new knowledge and enhanced methods • support forest policies with harmonised forest information and adapt data collection to new emerging policy needs.

Patterson, Charles T. Scott, and Gregory A. Reams The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the USDA Forest Service has initiated a transition from regional, periodic inventories to an enhanced national FIA program featuring annual measurement.
Examples of multi-phase and multi-source inventory are presented. Methods suitable for special applications, like stand-level or global-level inventory, are also presented. Section III deals with national inventories carried out in different parts of the world. Examples of forest inventory in selected countries around the world are presented.The "definitive text" on hybrid models for forest management and "should be on the shelf of any scientist, student or practitioner interested in understanding, modeling or managing forest ecosystems" - Hans Pretzsch, Chair of Forest Yield Science, Technical University of München.
