Testing a Nested-Intensity Sampling Design
The variability inherent in all natural landscapes poses a significant challenge in designing accurate and complete inventories of plant diversity given typical cost constraints. One option is to establish many large plots across the landscape, or maybe twice as many smaller plots across the landscape for the same cost. However, all designs have cost limitations. In this case study, three plot designs were used: a large, multi-scale plot; a smaller multi-scale plot; and a single-scale plot to assess the advantages and disadvantages associated with the integrated use of three vegetation sampling plot designs.
