Estimation of forest growth from successive surveys


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