Title: The enhanced forest inventory and analysis program of the USDA forest service: historical perspective and announcements of statistical documentation

Author: McRoberts, Ronald E.; Bechtold, William A.; Patterson, Paul L.; Scott, Charles T.; Reams, Gregory A.

Date: 2005

Source: Journal of Forestry. 3(6): 304-308.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the USDA Forest Service has initiated a transition from regional, periodic inventories to an enhanced national FIA program featuring annual measurement of a proportion of plots in each state, greater national consistency, and integration with the ground sampling component of the Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) program. The transition has required conceptual and technical changes in the statistical methodology that supports the program. This article provides a brief historical perspective on the FIA program, announces publication of the statistical documentation supporting the program, previews individual chapters in the documentation, and provides a brief discussion of areas where investigations are continuing.
