Forest area
Entry ID: forest_area-44_1.0


Summary
Abstract: The forest area is the total sum of all areas classified as forest according to NFI?s forest definition. The forest definition includes shrub forest. This theme is also used to assess the total area when forest and non-forest need to be distinguished. __Citation:__ > _Abegg, M.; Brändli, U.-B.; Cioldi, F.; Fischer, C.; Herold-Bonardi, A.; Huber M.; Keller, M.; Meile, R.; Rösler, E.; Speich, S.; Traub, B.; Vidondo, B.
