Inventory Design and the Ten-Plots-per-Stand Syndrome
Common Lake States practices of stand description and inventory, and continuous forest inventory (CFI) are criticized. The origin of current practices is discussed and suggestions are made for refinement of practices in light of emerging forest sampling and managment decision-making techniques. Emphasis is placed on developing data of varying precision levels that meet the requirements for specific forest managment and planning problems. North. J. Appl. For. 1:76-79, Dec. 1984.
