$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Buy Article:


A method is presented to develop forest type definitions by using cluster analysis of forest inventory data collected in southeast Alaska from 1995 through 1998. Species stocking levels were used as variables for cluster development. Pacific Northwest Research Station forest inventory staff could not compute forest type for some forested conditions in southeast Alaska using then existing forest type definitions. Forest type definitions developed by cluster analysis improved computed assignment of forest type. West. J. Appl. For. 16(3):101–105.
