    Description

    Quantifying the impact of silvicultural treatments on woody understory vegetation largely has been accomplished by destructive sampling or through estimates of frequency and coverage. In studies where repeated measures of understory biomass across large areas are needed, destructive sampling and percent cover estimates are not satisfactory. For example, estimates of change in net primary productivity on fixed plots and carbon and nutrient losses from fire both would be difficult to obtain using either visual coverage estimates or destructive sampling.
