The transect relascope : an instrument for the quantification of coarse woody debris

Ståhl, Göran


A method for the quantification of coarse woody debris in terms of the total length of down logs of various types is presented. The method combines relascope and line intersect sampling theory. Estimation is based on a count of logs using a relascope instrument along a survey line. In cost­ efficiency comparisons with line intersect and circular plot sampling, the proposed method showed promising results. Key words: Coarse woody debris, forest inventory, relascope, sampling.
