Summary and Overview

  • Richard Condit
Part of the Environmental Intelligence Unit book series (EIU)


I have two different ways to conclude this section on field methodology. First, I provide a summary table which compares and contrasts the methods used at the 12 large census plots. This highlights the important techniques used and rules followed, where they are the same and where they differ between plots. Second, I collect all my estimates of the time, labor, and equipment needed and come up with an estimate of what it takes to complete a large plot.
