Abstract: 
Deadwood is a key ecological factor in forest ecosystems. Its occurrence is fundamental since it represents a microhabitat for
hundreds of species of invertebrates, fungi, bryophytes, lichens, amphibians, small mammals and birds. In recent years,
deadwood has been recognized as a relevant indicator for the assessment and monitoring of forest biodiversity. In this paper
the methodology for surveying woody necromass proposed by the ForestBIOTA project under Regulation (EC) No 2152/
2003 (Forest Focus) is described. The amount of deadwood found on 91 Intensive Monitoring Level II plot of the EU and
ICP Forest condition monitoring programme range from 0 to 258 m3 ha71. In the examined areas, total deadwood volume
does not differ significantly among forest types, due to the high intra-type variability. On the other hand, its distribution
between coarse and fine necromass and among necromass components is highly dependent on forest types.
