Strategic planning of forest resources in Europe requires reliable information on the status and trend of forest condition. National Forest Inventories (NFIs) and Forest Condition Monitoring (FCM) networks are primary sources of data for large area assessments of forest resources. This contribution seeks to outline a statistical perspective for the construction of a European forest monitoring system, able to provide statistically sound estimates of forest condition (defoliation) parameters and of their changes over time. Monitoring objectives, parameters of interest, and accuracy indexes are presented, under the assumption that a common definition for forests is adopted by European countries. The proposed estimators are of two types: (i) based solely on information acquired from FCM and (ii) derived from integration of FCM and NFIs.

The demand for comparable, long-term, high quality data on forest ecosystems' status and changes is increasing at the international and global level. Yet, sources for such data are limited and in many case it is not possible to compare data from different monitoring initiatives across space and time because of methodological differences. Apart from technical manuals, there is no comprehensive multidisciplinary, scientific, peer-reviewed reference for forest monitoring methods that can serve and support the user community. This book provides in

The assessment and evaluation of tree condition and vitality is an essential part of the ICP Forests monitoring programme. Due to the complex structure of forest ecosystems, a number of different indicators of tree condition are adopted. In this chapter, they are described also in terms of their ecological relevance. Special emphasis is laid on biotic agents affecting forest ecosystems and explaining tree responses to stressors. For operational reasons, definitions and recommendations for the use of the indicators are given.

The importance of translating the results of forest monitoring into useful commodities (i.e., data, information, knowledge, and wisdom) is discussed. The need for an effective communications strategy is stressed, following well-established reporting principles. Reporting may involve a range of communications specialists as well as those who collect the data, and scientists who analyze and interpret it. It is vital that the type of report is tailored to the needs of particular audiences, be they scientists or modelers, policy and/

Among the elements of forest biodiversity, vegetation, including epiphytes, is the foundation of ecosystem functioning and primary production. Basic features for harmonized large-scale and intensive monitoring of vascular plants, cryptogams, and epiphytic lichens are presented. For the assessment of ground vegetation on the European scale, a minimum, single-scale approach (with a common sampling area of 400-m2) is suggested to produce sets of presence–absence and relative cover data. This common frame can accommodate national designs. For epiphytic lichens, sampling follows

Many studies have elucidated the possible effects of air pollution/acid deposition on East Asian forest ecosystems. Consequently, in addition to monitoring wet and dry deposition, the Acid Deposition Monitoring Network in East Asia (EANET) has been monitoring soil, vegetation, and inland water in forest areas since 2001 as part of its regular-phase activities. Moreover, catchment monitoring is being promoted as an integrated monitoring effort. In this chapter, the monitoring methodologies used in EANET are introduced and the recent outcomes from

Chemical foliar analyses are a widely used tool to obtain information on the nutritional status of forests and effects of stress factors such as atmospheric deposition. Harmonized methods for field sampling, laboratory analysis, and data treatment as well as stringent Quality Assurance and Quality Control are essential to provide reliable results, especially when data collection is carried out at the large scale and on the long term. Based on the experience gained within the ICP Forests, this chapter gives practical

National information needs on forests have grown considerably in recent years, evolving from forest area and growing stock information to key aspects of sustainable forest management, such as the role of forests in the conservation of biodiversity and the provision of other ecosystem services. More recently, information on changes in carbon stocks, socio-economic aspects including the contribution to livelihoods and poverty reduction, governance and broader land use issues has become critical for national planning.

Chemical content of soil solution is varying in time and space and is dependent on the sampling and measurement techniques in use. It is a valuable indicator for effects of stress factors on both forests and the surrounding water ecosystems. A continuous standardized methodology for soil solution collection and analysis is of ultimate importance. Methods for harmonized collection and analysis of soil solution on a Europe-wide scale are presented with a special emphasis on sampling and measurement techniques, Quality Assurance,

The chapter describes methodologies for harmonized phenological assessments based on a limited set of development phases: flushing, flowering, secondary flushing, color change, and leaf/needle fall. Manual phenological observations are based on a brief examination in the forest stands. More recently, the use of terrestrial digital image photography for forest phenology monitoring has been adopted. Vegetation indices, such as the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) have been used for many years to quantify the phenology of different ecosystems. For satellite-based

Chemical analyses are an essential part of forest ecosystem monitoring activities. Harmonized, well-defined, and documented analytical methods are an important part of a laboratory Quality Control program and are essential to maximize spatial and temporal comparability of monitoring data. Different quality and data consistency checks, plausible ranges for analytical results, use of reference materials, and control charts are described for internal laboratory Quality Control. On the other side, coordinated ring tests among participating laboratories are an integral part of external

The development of a system for forest monitoring and measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) is an on-going priority – and challenge – for REDD+ countries. Although many countries already have some form of national forest monitoring in place, the existing capacity often falls short of the level required to participate fully in REDD+. In this context, a group of experts from around the world met in September 2012 to share their experiences and to discuss some of the central – and at times controversial –

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has been providing support to member countries on national forest monitoring for decades. Best practices and lessons learned from this support are summarized in FAO´s Voluntary guidelines on national forest monitoring (VGNFM). The guidelines provide principles, elements and best practices for the establishment and implementation of a multipurpose National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS). The aim of this paper is to strengthen the elements and guidelines provided in the VGNFM
