ICP Forests Manual

The monitoring manual documents the harmonized methods for sampling
and analysis as adopted by the participating countries of ICP Forests.
A general revision of the ICP Forests monitoring manual has been carried
out in spring 2010. The updated parts of the manual have been adopted
by the programme Task Force on 1 June 2010.
