For stands, random sampling, line transects, ricochet plot, systematic sampling, single plot, cluster, subjective sampling and complete enumeration are discussed. For forests inventory, the main categories are subjective sampling, inventories without prior stand mapping, inventories with prior stand mapping, inventories using existing stand information, and complete enumeration. Systematic sampling, stratified sampling, equal probability sampling, probability sampling proportional to size, etc. are presented.
