Additional results for perpendicular distance sampling.
Over the last decade a number of new methods have been proposed to sample coarse woody debris. Of the new methods, both field trials and computer simulations suggest that perpendicular distance sampling is often the most efficient method for estimating the volume and surface area of coarse woody debris. As with any new sampling technique, further research and field testing are required to address some of the practical problems associated with the implementation of perpendicular distance sampling. This paper provides further results associated with the sampling of curved and multistemmed logs and field techniques for both slope correction and the measurement of elevated logs.
