Marked, biased, filter (MBF): use of digital X-radiography and mark-recapture to partition seed lots based on sampled individual seed quality attributes


We report results of preliminary evaluations of marked, biased, filter (MBF), a method for both estimating and improving the effectiveness of separating conifer seeds. MBF integrates elements of X-radiographic seed quality assessment and mark-recapture methods from wildlife population sampling. Given a sample drawn from a population, individual seeds with… (More)
