Grain and Extent Considerations Are Integral for Monitoring Landscape-Scale Desired Conditions in Fire-Adapted Forests

Tzeidle N. Wasserman, Andrew J. Sánchez Meador, Amy E. M. Waltz
2019 Forests  
Often, canopy cover is measured only at the scale of the spatial data product used in the analysis, and there is a mismatch between the management question and the scale of the data.  ...  When performing analyses and choosing data layers, it is essential to match the scale of the data product to the management question and understand the limitations inherent in using canopy cover as a stand-alone  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
