Table 5 : Forest cover - latest national statistics

The table presents the latest forest cover statistics with national coverage, reclassified from national classifications into the global classification system used in FRA 2000 (see also Table 2). In some cases the national coverage was obtained by combining several surveys into a national scenario. "Reference year" is the average year of the field survey or the remote sensing material used. Refer toWorking Paper No. 1 (FAO 1998) for an explanation of definitions used. The statistics have been obtained from analysis of national documentation which is fully referenced in the country profiles on the FAO Forestry Web site<br><br> <center><h4>FRA Global table 5:<br>Forest cover - latest national statistics</h4></center>
