    Description

    The FIA annual panel design and its relation to compatible estimation systems for the components of change are discussed. Estimation for the traditional components of growth, as presented by Meyer (1953, Forest Mensuration) is bypassed in favor of a focus on estimation for the discrete analogs to Eriksson’s (1995, For. Sci. 41(4):796- 822) time invariant redefinitions of the components of change, as evaluated in Roesch (2004), and Roesch (in review). A simple extension of the mixed estimation framework for forest inventory trends presented in Van Deusen (1996, Can. J. For. Res. 26: 1709- 1713.) and Van Deusen (1999, Can. J. For. Res. 29(12): 1824-1828) is used to unify estimation of the individual components.
