Clearly explains the sampling methods associated with the inventory of forest resources. It avoids extensive coverage of theoretical statistics and mathematics in favor of thorough coverage of forest inventory topics for the practitioner.


A textbook for undergraduates and a reference for practicing professionals in forest resources. Explains principles and methods of inventorying virtually any forest resource, including timber, other vegetation, soils, water, and wildlife. Considers determining the needed sample size, handling edge-effect problems, and designing cruises to reduce sampling errors, optimizing the benefits of stratification, auxiliary variables, point sampling and point vs. plot comparison, and 3P sampling. Many of the methods have only been published in journals before. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
