The aim of the study was  to elaborate a user-friendly report presenting European-level forest types, serving as a tool to assess the state and development of biological diversity. This should serve European and national organisations involved in European policy for the sustainable management of forests as well as a basis for practical implementation at different levels. The report should address the issue of presenting evaluation tools for monitoring the condition of forest biodiversity in EEA countries, built upon:

  • a set of biodiversity indicators giving a synthetic picture of the status and trends of Europe's forest biodiversity;
  • a forest types classification to be used for optimizing the assessment and reporting of the indicators at national and European level;
  • suggested sampling designs/techniques for assessment of biodiversity indicators at national level. The distribution of work among partners will be done according to their expertise and the work programme requirements.
