DescriptionThe Interior West Forest Inventory and Analysis (IWFIA) Program of the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, as part of our National Forest System cooperative inventories, conducted a forest resource inventory on the Medicine Bow National Forest using a nationally standardized mapped-plot design (for more details see "Inventory methods" section page 11). This report presents the highlights of this 2001 inventory using commonly requested variables and summaries. The data could be summarized in other ways for different purposes (see "For further information" on the inside back cover). The information presented in this report is based solely on the IWFIA inventory sample (USDA 1999). Supplementary documentation and inventory terminology can be located in USDA (2002). Additional data collected by the Medicine Bow National Forest and used separately or in combination with IWFIA data may produce varying results. Changes since the inventory, such as the impact of recent disturbances on the Forest, have not been incorporated into this report. Annual inventories will soon replace periodic inventories to help monitor these changes at shorter intervals.
