Forests have a critical role in addressing global issues of sequestering carbon while providing renewable materials and energy as well as a host of ecosystem services. The world’s forests are diverse and serve myriad purposes, but, regardless of the management objective, reliable models of forest stand dynamics, growth, and yield are required. variety of research projects centered on forest growth, development, and sustainable yield. Examples include: 1.) Analysis of sustainable timber yields for state administered lands using the Forest Age Class Change Simulator (FACCS), and USDA Forest Inventory . Permanent and interval plots may come from inventory or monitoring programs or growth and yield studies that assess silvicultural treatment e ects (e.g., thinning, fertilization). Köhl et al. [3] compared permanent inventory and growth and yield study plots for the purpose of growth model development.   The new, revised edition of the standard volume on forest measurement The updated edition of this long-standing classic, Forest Mensuration, Fourth Edition, provides new, complete coverage of current measurement practices and technological applications that expand the role of forest mensuration to include monitoring forest resources.

T. Thuresson. Tomas Thuresson is Forest Analyst at the National Board of Forestry, Jönköping, Sweden. On-the-ground forest inventory with relatively low sampling intensity can provide needed information for country-level decision-making at acceptable cost. iForest is an Open Access, peer-reviewed online journal published by the Italian Society of Silviculture and Forest Ecology (SISEF). The journal encompasses a broad range of research aspects concerning forest science: forest ecology, biodiversity/genetics and ecophysiology, silviculture, forest inventory and planning, forest protection and monitoring, forest .

PRECISION aims at improving the carbon footprint and hence the overall sustainability of the Norwegian forest sector. RBR has a negative impact on the carbon footprint of the forestry sector as it reduces tree growth, increases tree mortality, and reduces the yield of saw timber that can substitute building materials with long lifetimes. Enhanced techniques for forest inventory, and growth and yield assessments and modelling; Joanne White is a Research Scientist with the Canadian Forest Service (Pacific Forestry Centre, Victoria, BC) and specializes in applications of remote sensing to support forest inventory and monitoring information needs. Joanne will speak to the.   Editorial: “Forest Inventories at the European level” These needs are traditionally fulfilled by the National Forest Inventory (NFI) programs, whose scope and methods have evolved continuously to meet these demands. pointing to the major role of forest growth and its monitoring to assess the sustainability of forest resource supply. Uses of Growth and Yield Prediction Systems Growth and yield predictions are used to update forest inventories, provide input for forest management monitoring the growth of the resource, and pro- the first complete continuous forest inventory that began in The empirical yield tables were present-.
