Puerto Rico's forest inventory: adapting the Forest Inventory and Analysis program to a Caribbean Island



Puerto Rico's forest inventory: adapting the Forest Inventory and Analysis program to a Caribbean Island



Journal of Forestry 101(1): 8-13



Rapid changes in vegetation over short distances, high species diversity, and fragmented landscape challenge the implementation of the Forest Service's Forest inventory and Analysis (FIA) programme on Puerto Rico. Applying the hexagonal FIA grid as used on the continental United States, the Forest Service is installing a new forest sampling and monitoring framework that incorporates previous inventory plots and has an expanded scope.
