  • Grasslands 2020-
  • Descidious forest 2020-
  • The mountain area 2003-2020

NILS is mainly funded by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and an important objective is to provide information for follow-up of the Swedish national environmental objectives and the Natura 2000 network. NILS also contributes data to environmental research and international reporting.
