    Description

    International forest statistics such as those provided by the UN/ECE-FAO Temperate and Boreal Forest Resource Assessment (TBFRA) are typically compiled from national surveys. However, the national systems of nomenclature as well as the definition of the attributes often vary considerably. The European Commission, DG VI, initiated a study to investigate the potential of a European Communication and Information System (EFICS). In the framework of the EFICS study, the effect of different definitions of forest key attributes was investigated. The main focus was on the forest area and growing stock attributes.
