Sampling for natural resource monitoring

J.J. de Gruijter, D.J. Brus, M.F.P. Bierkens, M. Knotters

Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic


The book presents the statistical knowledge and methodology of sampling and data analysis useful for spatial inventory and monitoring of natural resources. The authors omitted all theory not essential for applications or for basic understanding. This presentation is broader than standard statistical texts, as the authors pay much attention to how statistical methodology can be employed and embedded in real-life spatial inventory and monitoring projects. Thus they discuss in detail how efficient sampling schemes and monitoring systems can be designed in view of the aims and constraints of the project.
