Reading Assignments

The instructors have selected a series of journal articles that will aid in the delivery of course material if read in advance of the training session. Most articles are of a review nature, but some may have content with which students are not familiar. Please keep a list of any unfamiliar terms and/or concepts so that we can collect and discuss them on our first morning together.


Introductory/review-style articles to help you remember the terminology and basic concepts, which should also help with the pre-work:

Sampling and Monitoring:


Policy and Law:

Density and Productivity:

Forest Regulation and Planning:
