DescriptionIntensifying interest in forests and the development of new monitoring technologies have induced major changes in forest monitoring systems in the last few years, including major revisions in the methods used for updating. This paper describes the methods available for projecting stand- and plot-level information, emphasizing advantages and disadvantages, and the subsequent use of the updated information in constructing new estimates. Research directions that might lead to improving the updating process are also discussed.
