Abstract

These proceedings report invited presentations and contributions to the 2015 Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Symposium, which was hosted by the Research and Development branch of the U.S. Forest Service. As the only comprehensive and continuous census of the forests in the United States, FIA provides strategic information needed to evaluate sustainability of current forest management practices across all ownerships. Papers and abstracts included in the publication have been sorted into general topic areas, including forest carbon accounting, change detection, and techniques development. Symposium papers cover high priority and timely issue-based topics including climate change, carbon flux, wildlife, disturbance, bioenergy, geo-spatial extensions, change monitoring, and integrating remote sensing and GIS applications.
