Notes: Confidence Intervals from Single Observations in Forest Research
A procedure for constructing confidence intervals and testing hypotheses from a single trial or observation is reviewed. The procedure requires a prior, fixed estimate or guess of the outcome of an experiment or sampling. Two examples of applications are described: a confidence interval is constructed for the expected outcome of a systematic sampling of a forested tract, and a hypothesis is tested in connection with a watershed experiment. Potential misuses of the procedure also are discussed. For. Sci. 37(1):370-373.
