Some problems and solutions in density estimation from bearing tree data : a review and synthesis

  title={Some problems and solutions in density estimation from bearing tree data : a review and synthesis},
  author={Jim Bouldin},
Aim I detail several problems and solutions related to estimating pre-settlement forest density from land surveyors’ bearing tree data. The data have a high value, so clarification of existing problems is needed in the development of a better theoretical framework in which to treat them. I focus on absolute density because it is the foundation for several other variables, e.g. basal area, timber volume and carbon content.
