Using FIA data to predict forest understory vegetation structure

Science Spotlights Posted on: September 03, 2019
Understanding the structure of understory vegetation in forests is critical for estimating carbon stocks, fuel loading, and assessing wildlife habit. Using nationally collected inventory data shows promise in providing better estimates and assessments in these areas over large geographical regions.

Using forest inventory data with Landsat 8 imagery to map longleaf pine forest characteristics in Georgia, USA

Publications Posted on: August 19, 2019
This study improved on previous efforts to map longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) over large areas in the southeastern United States of America by developing new methods that integrate forest inventory data, aerial photography and Landsat 8 imagery to model forest characteristics.

Predicting understory vegetation structure in selected western forests of the United States using FIA inventory data

Publications Posted on: July 25, 2019
Understory vegetation structure and its relationship with forest canopies and site conditions are important determinants of carbon stocks, wildlife habitat, and fuel loading for wildland fire assessments. Comprehensive studies are needed to assess these relationships through the use of consistently collected field-based data.
