This class holds the inclusion zone definition for the ‘omnibus perpendicular distance sampling’ method (Ducey et. al, 2008) for sampling down coarse woody debris.
Objects can be created by calls of the
new("omnibusPDSIZ", ...). However, this is not recommended
because the objects are fairly complex. Instead, one can use the object
omnibusPDSIZ to create new objects.
This class is a direct descendent (subclass) of
"perpendicularDistanceIZ" and adds no new slots to that
definition. Please see the
"perpendicularDistanceIZ" class definition for
"downLogIZ", by class "perpendicularDistanceIZ", distance 2.
"InclusionZone", by class "perpendicularDistanceIZ", distance 3.
