Bridging national and reference definitions for harmonizing forest statistics

  
Forest Science (June 2012), pp. 214-223, https://doi.org/10.5849/forsci.10-067

Abstract

Harmonization is the process of making information and estimates comparable across administrative borders. The degree to which harmonization succeeds depends on many factors, including the conciseness of the definitions, the availability and quality of data, and the methods used to convert an estimate according to a local definition to an estimate according to the reference definition. Harmonization requires the availability and use of common reference definitions and methods for converting from estimates based on national definitions to estimates based on reference ...

 

The common NFI database

  
In National forest inventories: contributions to forest biodiversity assessments, Vol. 20 (2011), pp. 99-119, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-94-007-0482-4_4

Abstract

To test bridging techniques for the harmonized estimation of forest biodiversity indicators for each of the selected essential features a common database was constructed and populated with raw NFI data provided by some of the COST Action E43 participating countries. The database was structured with five tables in a relational database: one table for descriptive plot data, one for tree level data, one for deadwood pieces, one for shrub data and one for ground vegetation. The database was populated with data ...

 

Harmonization tests

  
In National forest inventories: contributions to forest biodiversity assessments, Vol. 20 (2011), pp. 121-190, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-94-007-0482-4_5

Abstract

Chapter 5 reports the results of testing the proposed procedures for harmonizing estimates of indicators for six of the seven essential features of forest biodiversity. Twenty indicators were tested using data from the common database.In general, positive results were obtained for forest categories, forest structure, forest age, deadwood, and naturalness; the results were less positive for ground vegetation because of the considerable differences in definitions and data acquisition methods. Of importance is, that the test focused on assessing harmonization procedures rather ...

Abstract

[Excerpt: Preface] Forest inventories throughout the world have evolved gradually over time. The content as well as the concepts and definitions employed are constantly adapted to the users’ needs. Advanced inventory systems have been established in many countries within Europe, as well as outside Europe, as a result of development work spanning several decades, in some cases more than 100 years. [\n] With continuously increasing international agreements and commitments, the need for information has also grown drastically, and reporting requests have become more frequent and the content of the ...

 

Prospects for harmonized biodiversity assessments using national forest inventory data

  
In National Forest Inventories: Contributions to Forest Biodiversity Assessments, Vol. 20 (2011), pp. 41-97, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-94-007-0482-4_3

Abstract

Following selection of the 13 biodiversity variables that were evaluated as both important and feasible for assessment by NFIs and grouping them into essential features, additional information was solicited regarding the degree to which the 13 variables are currently assessed by NFIs. The objective was to evaluate the prospects for harmonized estimates of biodiversity indicators based on these variables. The prospects varied considerably depending on the particular variable and essential feature. The evaluations produced positive harmonization possibilities for forest categories and ...

 

Introduction

  
In National forest inventories - Pathways for common reporting (2010), pp. 1-18, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-90-481-3233-1_1

Abstract

The history of forest inventories goes back to the end of the Middle Ages when intensive use of forest resources first led to wood shortages which, in turn, forced users to begin forest planning, particularly near towns and mines (Loetsch and Haller 1973; Gabler and Schadauer 2007). The first information collected for these purposes was from assessments of forest area and crude estimates of growing stock. [\n] As a noun, the word ‘inventory’ refers to a detailed list of articles according to ...

 

Harmonizing National Forest Inventories

  
Journal of Forestry (June 2009), pp. 179-187

Abstract

National forest inventories are a primary source of data for national and large area assessments of sustainability and biodiversity and for international forest resource reporting. However, the ability of countries to produce compatible estimates using these data is impeded by the diversity of their national inventory definitions, sampling designs, plot configurations, measured variables, and measurement protocols. In addition, because the differing features of these inventories have historical, commercial, and environmental justification, prospects for standardizing inventories are minimal. The best current alternative ...
