Guide to Evaluating Forest Growth Projection Systems
Abstract:The number and complexity of forest growth projection systems may make the task of evaluating and comparing alternative systems seem overwhelming. Evaluations typically require the synthesis of many quantitative and qualitative factors. Managers can often benefit by separately considering the application environment, the performance, and the design of each candidate system. Although selection of evaluation criteria depends largely upon the application being considered, guidance is available from the many evaluation criteria in the literature.
