Some Current Subsampling Techniques in Forestry

Kim Iles


Because different tree parameters are of differing importance, and have different variability, efficiency in sampling would suggest that some of the principle variables be subsampled. One convenient way to do this is to sample different numbers of items at the same sample locations. This paper is a review of some current techniques in subsampling for measured values, especially with Variable Plot sampling, but including Fixed Plot and 3P sampling as well.
