Scientific Summary 94 in IUFRO News Vol. 41, Issue 9, September 2012
The 1st Brazilian Meeting on Forest Mensuration (MENSUFLOR) was held on 9-10 August, 2012 at the Federal University of Jequitinhonha and Mucuri Valleys/UFVJM in Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil, and was co-sponsored by IUFRO 4.01.02 Growth models for tree and stand simulation. The key issues discussed were: historical context of the Brazilian forest mensuration; use of artificial intelligence in forest measurement; mixed effect models applied in studies of growth and yield; forest planning optimized for obtaining multiproduct wood; theoretical and practical aspects of sampling to quantify necromass forest (standing dead fallen wood or biomass); use of randomized branch sampling to estimate timber and non-timber forest; and forest carbon inventory and measurement systems for commercial timber in logs.
