Abstract: Owing to recent outbreaks of many insect pests and to the spreading of some pathogens in different forest ecosystems, such as oak and pine woods, an extensive phytopatological monitoring survey started in 2000 in Tuscany to set up a database with biological data on harmful species as well as on their natural enemies. The monitoring program named META is based on permanent plots referred to the Regional Forestry Inventary and includes data obtained by trained forest staff over a forest viability network. Based on a GIS software, the project is aimed to provide informations on population dynamics of the most harmful species to be used to forecast damage trends.
