Title: Long-term strategy for the statistical design of a forest health monitoring system

Author: Schreuder, Hans T.; Czaplewski, Raymond L.

Date: 1993

Source: Environmental Monitoring and Assessment. 27: 81-94.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: A conceptual framework is given for a broad-scale survey of forest health that accomplishes three objectives: generate descriptive statistics; detect changes in such statistics; and simplify analytical inferences that identify, and possibly establish cause-effect relationships. Our paper discusses the development of sampling schemes to satisfy these three objectives, but without any design restrictions implied by existing sample surveys. A general vision of a desirable future system will increase chances that short-term decisions will lead to better environmental monitoring systems in the long term.

Keywords: forest health monitoring, descriptive statistics, cause-effect relationships
