The Ware and Cunia (1962) method for estimating volume at time 2 from sampling with partial replacement is proven to be equivalent to a generalized least squares estimator (GLS). The GLS approach is advantageous because it extends easily to encompass multiple occasion sampling with partial replacement (MOSPR). An iterative GLS procedure is given for simultaneously estimating population parameters and their variances that avoids incompatibility problems that arose with some previously published methods. The MOSPR theory is also extended to include growth component estimation with additivity constraints. For. Sci. 35(2):388-400.
