I suggest you leaf through the book 'Remote sensing of the environment' by Jensen. you will find it easily on google books. It has a chapter on vegetation analyse. Form your question first then.

Methods of sampling vegetation attributes. Vegetation attributes are a quantitative feature of vegetation that describe how many, how much or what kind of plant species are : Mahfouz Abu-Zanat.

Shrub character- ization is the collection of data on the shrub and tree component of a vegetation community. Attributes that could be important for shrub characterization are height, volume, foliage density, crown diameter, form class, age class, and total number of plants by species (density).

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

There have been several vegetation science textbooks published sincebut their foci have been on ordination and multivariate data analysis instead of on sampling methods. No other text has covered the subject of vegetation sampling design in such depth, breadth, and impartiality as this book, Aims and Methods of Vegetation by: An investigation was made into the difference in vegetation between a grazed and an ungrazed section of the fixed dunes.

A random sample using 30 frame quadrats is taken in each area. In the grazed area, bird's-foot trefoil was present in 18 of the 30 quadrats; in the ungrazed area, bird's-foot trefoil was present in 6 of the 30 quadrats. The intent of this interagency monitoring guide is to provide the basis for consistent, uniform, and standard vegetation attribute sampling that is economical, repeatable, statistically reliable, and technically adequate.

While this guide is not all inclusive, it does include the primary sampling methods used across the West. Measurements for Terrestrial Vegetation, 2 nd Edition presents up-to-date methods for analyzing species frequency, plant cover, density and biomass data. Each method is presented in detail with a full discussion of its strengths and weaknesses from field applications through statistical characteristics of bias and use of the correct probability distribution to describe and analyze data.

Northern Territory Guidelines and Field Methodology for Vegetation Survey and Mapping INTRODUCTION This Section provides information on vegetation survey and mapping in the Northern Territory (NT) as currently practised by Land and Vegetation of Department of Natural Resources, Environment and the Arts (NRETA).

The selection of attributes is an important consideration when planning a sampling program. The following sections describe the vegetation attributes that are regularly used in rangeland inventory or monitoring programs and discuss the strengths and weaknesses for the many field sampling techniques that are available to measure these attributes.Sampling fruits Mast traps Seed traps or counting 25 directly with binoculars.
