Description: Methods and procedures are given for collecting and processing living and dead plant materials for the purpose of determining their water content. Wild-land fuels in Alaska are emphasized, but the methodology is applicable elsewhere. Guides are given for determining the number of samples needed to attain a chosen precision. Detailed procedures are presented for collecting fuel samples in the field, transporting them safely, and handling them in the laboratory. General guidelines for all live fuels and specific techniques for individual species are given.
