Forest measurements and biometrics involves developing and testing methods for taking and using measures from forested lands, including statistical sampling and analysis methods. This site presents:
· Recent Research Papers and Thesis that might be of interest
· Pamphlets explaining the use of newer analysis methods using forestry examples (e.g., mixed models, generalized linear models, spatial modelling), generally meant to be used as teaching tools
· Short Papers describing useful methods of measurement, data collection, and/or analysis including samplig formula
· Presentations and conferences related to forest biometrics
· Photos -- photographs of forest measurements in action! These photos can be downloaded for use in teaching
· People associated with UBC forest biometrics can be seen here
· Links to other forest measurements and biometrics web sites
· PrognosisBC Modelling, University of British Columbia: This website provides the information of PrgonosisBC which was adapted from the forest vegetaion simulator(FVS) in 1997.
· ForValueNet Mixed and Other Models Workshop, Jun, 2010
