Assessment of Coarse Woody Debris : A comparison of probability sampling methods

Ståhl, Göran; Lämås, Tomas

Abstract

Assessing the total length of CWD is cheaper than assessing the total volume of CWD. In case line intersect or transect relascope sampling is used, the length can be estimated by only counting the logs included in the sample. The usefulness of the total length of logs as an indicator of habitat conditions can, however, be questioned. Still, if logs are classified into different dimension classes, a description of this kind should not be too different from using the total volume of logs.
