Title: Minimizing Experimental Error in Thinning Research

Author: Briscoe, C. B.;

Date: 1964

Source: Unpublished study plan, Forest Commission files, Alice Holt England

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: Many diverse approaches have been made prescribing and evaluating thinnings on an objective basis. None of the techniques proposed hasbeen widely accepted. Indeed. none has been proven superior to the others nor even widely applicable. There are at least two possible reasons for this: none of the techniques suggested is of any general utility and/or experimental error (whether or not results are actually subjected to statistical analyses) is so large that real treatment effects are hidden..
