Service Description
This map shows the European forest area at 100m spatial resolution covering EEA39 in 2012. The dataset complies with the FAO forest definition (minimum mapping unit of 0.5 ha, minimum coverage of 10% and excluding land that is predominantly under agricultural or urban land use).The forest area indicator is based on the HRL forest products from EU Copernicus programme. It is the combination of the Tree Cover Density (TCD), the Forest Type product (FTY) and the Forest Additional Support Layer (FDASL) datasets at 20m -2012-. It is a Boolean dataset (forest/non-forest product). The pixel value is 1, forest area, where forest is the major coverage in the pixel; otherwise the pixel value is 0, non-forest.

Service Description
The indicator on the morphological structure of forests has been obtained with the application of the modelling tool namely GUIDOS toolbox (Vogt, 2013), within the forest coverage of Carpathians area obtained from the PALSAR-2 forest/ non-forest map (ALOS-2/ALOS, Earth Observation Research Center, JAXA). The resulting map provides with the calculation of a Morphological Spatial Pattern Analysis (MSPA) which determines the geometry and connectivity of the forest areas in the KEO. Several parameters can be calculated using this tool including the core area of forests, the islets within forests, the loop areas within a forest (being the areas that are connected from different sides to the same forest core area), the bridges within forests (being connected to forest core from different places and to different core areas within a forest), the forest perforation being the internal foreground forest perimeter, and the forest edge being the external foreground forest perimeter, and the forest branches being connected to any of the previous morphological parameters but not to the core of a forest.

Description
The forest fragmentation indicator detects and describes the geometry and the connectivity of forests coverage. This indicator, developed based on the methodology of the European study Forest landscape in Europe: Pattern, Fragmentation, and connectivity (Estreguil et al., 2012), has been calculated for the Carpathian forest included within the Carpathians Environment Outlook (KEO) buffer boundaries (EEA, 2010).

Service Description
The naturalness indicator, implemented in ETCSIA 2014 (ETC-SIA, 2014) is equal to the relation between the high percentage of natural species presence and the percentage of forest coverage, providing an indication of the level of natural forest species available in a forest ecosystem. In this calculation on Carpathian region, the species of interest were selected from the distribution maps from the European Forest Inventory (Brus, et al., 2011), grouped following the spatial distribution provided by (Barbati et al., 2013) and divided by percentage of available forest obtained from the PALSAR-2 forest/ non-forest map (ALOS-2/ALOS, Earth Observation Research Center, JAXA).

Service Description
The natural assemblage species indicator is a forest indicator. This is a proxy for measuring the congruency between the potential and current tree species distribution. The natural assemblage indicator is considered a key indicator in the evaluation of HNV forest area indicator (EEA, 2014). The dataset values express, in the fuzzy values between 0 and 1, the percentage of tree species vegetation agreed with potentially dominant tree species by pixels. The values close to 1 mean high percentage of native tree species (natural) whereas values close to 0 are an approximation of a low level of naturalness, being a high percentage of non-native species.

Description
The natural assemblage tree species indicator is a forest indicator. This is a proxy for measuring the congruency between the potential and current tree species distribution. The dataset values express, in the fuzzy values between 0 and 1, the percentage of tree species vegetation agreed with potentially dominant tree species by pixels. This measure is independent of the current forest coverage. The values close to 1 mean high percentage of native tree species (natural) whereas values close to 0 are an approximation of a low level of naturalness, being a high percentage of non-native species.

Service Description
The Richness index of forest related species and habitats was developed to be used as a sub-indicator for contributing to the identification of the High Nature Value (HNV) Forest Areas as it will be integrated with other sub-indicators of horizontal structure, management and naturalness to generate the final composite indicator. It is composed itself of three sub-indicators: “Forest Non-bird species”, “Forest bird species” and “Forest habitats”. All the three sub-indicators build on distribution data from the reporting of habitat and species conservation status under Article 17 of the Habitats Directive and Article 12 of the Birds directive which describe their distribution at 10km grid resolution. The forest species and the forest habitats proposed to be used for the HNV forest area identification were selected based on expert judgement (ETC/BD) and raster files reporting the count of forest species and habitats were created. At this stage, no weight is applied based on Habitat and Species prioritization, conservation status or endemism.The sub-indicators were then normalized for each forest type (http://forest.jrc.ec.europa.eu/activities/climate-change/forest-type-suitability/) and successively combined not assigning any specific weight to a particular sub-indicator.The indicator on Forest Biodiversity ranges between 0 and 1. The values close to 1 mean high presense of habitats and species related to forest, whereas the lower richness are closer to 0. It covers the forested areas of the EU27 Member States (data from Croatia will be reported starting from the next update regarding the period 2013-2018).
