National Estimates of China’s Forests Become More Consistent and Precise, Thanks to Forest Service Scientists
DescriptionMain results and important changes in China’s NFI are documented, both to support continued trend analysis and to provide data users with historical perspective. New technologies and data needs ensure that the Chinese NFI, like the national inventories in other countries, will continue to evolve. Within the context of historical change and current conditions, likely directions for this evolution are suggested.
