Estimation of forest growth from successive surveys

, : Estimation of forest growth from successive surveys. Forest Ecology & Management 56(1-4): 267-278

Estimators of forest growth and meaningful components of growth are presented in a unified framework. The approach is based on the identification of mutually exclusive domains of the target population of trees, each of which contributes to the overall net change in the value of the resource to be estimated. Various estimators that have been proposed in the literature are reviewed and examined within this framework. An estimator of the component of growth corresponding to each domain of study is shown to relate back to the trees sampled from that domain, a portion of it, or in some cases, a union of two domains. Special attention is given to the treatment and examination of the issues of additivity of growth components and the recalibration effect which hampers additivity, both of which arise in the context of horizontal point sampling designs.

The Carrowmoran sandstone is described in terms of five deltaic facies ranging from terrestrially colonised deltaic to off-shore clear-water beds of marine origin. Migrations of distributaries are inferred from the presence of five marine incursio...

B cell exposure to IL-4 alters subsequent BCR signaling such that ERK phospborylation becomes signalosome-independent; however, the nature of this new, alternate signaling pathway and its relationship to the classical, signalosome-dependent signa...

Exposure to ozone in air pollution in urban environments is associated with increases in pulmonary-related hospitalizations and mortality. Because ozone also alters clearance of pulmonary bacterial pathogens, we hypothesized that inhalation of oz...
