Forest Biometrics presents the methods of mathematical statistics and biometrics that are significant to forestry. This book explores other fields related to forestry, which are explained with the help of a large number of practical examples. Organized into 25 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the variety of data that play a significant role in forest management, including the age of trees, the damage caused by storms, the fluctuation of timber prices, bark beetle infestation, and timber volume. This text then examines the factors that are responsible for a random distribution of the values in biological experimentation. Other chapters consider the important advantages of sample surveys compared to complete enumerations, include cheaper samples, wider applicability, quick results, and greater accuracy. The final chapter deals with the factors to be considered in determining the best time for harvesting of timber. This book is a valuable resource for students, research project leaders, and practical workers.
