Practical Correction of Boundary Overlap
Abstract:Boundary overlap has concerned forest samplers acutely since the introduction of horizontal point sampling in the 1950's. Although numerous methods have been proposed to minimize this source of bias, none has done it so neatly as the "mirage method" developed by P. Schmid and published in German in 1969. This article decribes the method for use with point or plot sampling and discusses an alternative for use where the mirage method is inappropriate.
