Continuing a tradition of excellence spanning over forty years, the Fifth Edition of Forest Measurements supplies forestry students at all levels with the concepts and methods they need for future success. The authors present timber measurement techniques applicable to any tree inventory regardless of management objectives. Assuming only some background in algebra and plane trigonometry, basic statistical concepts are included, ensuring that even introductory students benefit from the book's concise explanations. Thorough coverage of sampling designs, land measurements, tree measurements, forest inventory field methods, and growth projections ensures utility for foresters throughout their education and beyond. Chapters on aerial photographs and GIS introduce readers to these powerful measurement tools, and the concluding chapter expands the techniques discussed to encompass other natural resources such as rangelands, wildlife, and water. Exceptionally readable and clear, the book includes many photographs and illustrations, numerous numerical examples, and a bibliography to enhance the reader's understanding of the material.
