Forest Succession in the Southern Piedmont Region
Abstract:The disrepute in which casual surveys--like opinion polls--are held may be deserved because of their frequent bias. Particularly is this true of car-window observations, such as the automobile survey described here. Precautious taken to obtain a sound sample, however, included the use of Tippett's "Random Sampling Numbers" to avoid possible personal bias in sample county selection, plus extensive observation from secondary county roads beyond the main highways to avoid over-sampling forest conditions associated with the principal routes of travel. Moreover, the primary contribution from this reconnaissance is the Figure 1 chart, which attempts to do no more than portray the status and direction of forest succession in the Piedmont today.
