Editorial Reviews

Booknews
For forest biometricians and graduate students with a strong interest in becoming forest inventory specialists, explores the previously unmapped common ground between forest inventory methods and theories of statistical survey sampling. Introduces some general methods of collecting data in both forestry and statistics, the definitions and theory needed for statistical inference, and a number of strategies for both sampling and inference. Also surveys a number of ideas that would make forest inventories easier or more accurate, but would require considerable research to become feasible; and predicts trends in the field. Annotation c.
