Abstract

Dr. Paul Van Deusen’s recent passing concluded a rich 30+-year research career dedicated to development and implementation of quantitative methods for forestry and natural resources. Since the early part of his career as a biometrician with the USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station in the 1980s-1990s and continuing with his later employment at NCASI, Dr. Van Deusen has made many research contributions that have been directly or indirectly important for the implementation of FIA data collection methods and for the analysis and interpretation of FIA data. We have attempted to summarize highlights of Dr. Van Deusen’s contributions to FIA and to forestry, as well as natural resources in general.
