    Description

    Understanding and inventorying our ecological systems is key to addressing how issues, questions, and management actions will affect the composition, structure, and function of these systems. Taking an ecological systems approach to the inventory and monitoring framework, is one which we feel will allow answers to currently identified management questions and new ones as they develop. More efficient ways to delineate polygons and a more credible method to attribute the polygons from a sample design are needed. Small area estimation such as the k-nearest neighbor or most similar neighbor, currently being evaluated, could be useful in mapping structural characteristic statistical data in a more defensible manner than methods used in the past.
