    Description

    Proper management of the valuable data from remeasured (or permanent) forest growth plots with data base management systems (DBMS) can greatly add to their utility. Twelve desired features for such a system (activities that facilitate the storage, accuracy, and use of the data for analysis) are described and used to evaluate the 36 systems found by a survey conducted in 1988. Most of the systems hag some positive characteristics, but none fully implemented all of the desired features. Additional DBMS features, which respondents of the survey noted would be desirable, are also summarized.
