DescriptionThe consequences of conducting a continuous inventory that utilizes measurements on overlapping temporal intervals of varying length on compatible estimation systems for the components of growth are explored. The time interpenetrating sample design of the USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis Program is used as an example. I show why estimation of the traditional components of growth, as presented by Meyer (1953, Forest Mensuration.), is less useful than it was in previous inventory designs and give a discrete analog to the time invariant redefinition of the components of change that were first given by Eriksson.
