Considerations in forest growth estimation between two measurements of mapped forest inventory plots



Considerations in forest growth estimation between two measurements of mapped forest inventory plots



General Technical Report USDA Forest Service (WP-70): 119-125



Several aspects of the enhanced Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program's national plot design complicate change estimation. The design incorporates up to three separate plot sizes (microplot, subplot, and macroplot) to sample trees of different sizes. Because multiple plot sizes are involved, change estimators designed for polyareal plot sampling, such as those used for horizontal point sampling, is still required.
