METADATA
TitleEFISCEN inventory database
CreatorEuropean Forest Institute (EFI)
DescriptionA large scale matrix model, called the European Forest Information Scenario Model (EFISCEN), is used for making projections of the future development of forest resources in Europe. The input data for the EFISCEN model are available through the EFISCEN inventory database. The basis of the EFISCEN Inventory database are the individual national forest inventories of 32 European countries (Albania, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom). Each country lists different so-called "forest types". In this context a forest type is "the forest that can be distinguished according to region, owner class, structure, site class and tree species". The level of detail between different countries may vary, as not all countries have presented their information at all possible levels (e.g. region, owner class, tree species, etc.). For each forest type and age class, the forest area, the total and mean volume, the total annual increment and the current annual increment may be retrieved from the EFISCEN Inventory database. Such data are available for all countries which have an even-aged forest structure.
