Joachim Saborowski

Joachim Saborowski is Professor for Forest Biometrics and Forest Inventory in the sections Ecoinformatics, Biometrics and Forest Growth, and Ecosystem Modelling, Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology. His main interests are in the fields of (i) geostatistics and regionalization , (ii) sampling techniques and forest inventory.

Key expertise:
• Multistage and multiphase sampling techniques in forest inventory
• Line and point transect sampling, randomized branch sampling
• Spatial prediction of forest stand characteristics
• Analysis of point processes
