Comparing three sampling techniques for estimating fine woody down dead biomass

Publications Posted on: September 29, 2014
Designing woody fuel sampling methods that quickly, accurately and efficiently assess biomass at relevant spatial scales requires extensive knowledge of each sampling method's strengths, weaknesses and tradeoffs.

A comparison of five sampling techniques to estimate surface fuel loading in montane forests

Publications Posted on: September 25, 2008
Designing a fuel-sampling program that accurately and efficiently assesses fuel load at relevant spatial scales requires knowledge of each sample method's strengths and weaknesses.We obtained loading values for six fuel components using five fuel load sampling techniques at five locations in western Montana, USA. The techniques included fixed-area plots, planar intersect, photoloads, a photoload macroplot, and a photo series.
