T10 Growing stock composition
T10.1 RationaleThe information on 'Growing stock composition' is important for understanding the dynamics of forests composition and addresses some critical issues relating to conservation of biodiversity. It also helps in developing efficient management plans and to satisfy needs for national and international reporting related to biodiversity.
T10.2 SpecificationsUnits and reporting years
|Unit of reporting||Million m3|
|Area to which reported figures refer||Area classified as 'Forest' in table T1|
|Reporting years||1990 and 2000|

Note: Each species should be specified by both scientific name and common name. Countries may report on genera instead of species if their inventory data do not allow the distinction of individual species within certain species groups.
Internal consistencyThe totals of growing stock should correspond to the total growing stock presented for 'Forest' in reporting table T5.
