Combining Inventory Data for Improved Estimates of Forest Resources
Abstract:Foresters occasionally have two or more estimates of the same volume, basal area, or other quantities of interest from independent inventories. A variety of statistical techniques for combining such estimates recently have begun to receive attention in surveys of census characteristics, agriculture, and forestry. Results from two independent timber resource inventories in Wayne County, Tennessee, are reported along with their respective sampling errors. Methods for combining estimates along with example calculations are presented and discussed. Suggestions are made for the application of this procedure to other sampling problems. South. J. Appl. For. 11(3):168-171.
