The total cost then equals only:

= 1349. 6 US $.
This means that for the given condition the same standard error (0. 5920 m /0. 05 ha)
is obtained with C^. = 1350 instead of 1780 US $.
It is interesting to compare this result with the one obtained from the application
of an already existing volume table.
In the above described example, crown cover was determined in 295 photo plots
and field volume in 175 field plots, the latter forming a part of the former. A
volume regression was calculated from the field and photo data from the 175 plots.
As there is only one person doing all photo estimations, no adjustment of the mean
photo volume necessary. In the example given below the volume regression
already exists and in a number of new photo plots (n^ = 295) the crown cover is
determined. The same equation is used as above. Substitution of c. = c 91 results
