Welcome to the
homepage of Lauri Mehtätalo
I am a forest modeler and biometrician, who is especially
interested in problems related to forest inventory, growth and yield.
I am especially interested in solutions that produce significant
improvements by going beyond the basic statistical applications.
I teach courses related to forest
biometrics, sampling, mixed-effects models and spatial statistics.
I have previous experience in teaching of forest planning, too.
Since year 2002 I have used the open-source software
R for almost all my research.
I also use it in teaching of both theoretical and practical statisics.
The R-package lmfor
includes some of my own functions for forestry-related problems.
