The EVALIDator can produce estimates of growth, removals and mortality for individual inventories.
The EVALIDator is unable to produce estimates of growth, removals and mortality for multiple inventories
when "Trend analysis" is chosen as the row classification variable and the inventories chosen have different
sampling designs (i.e., a mix of periodic and annual inventories). In the event that a user inadvertently runs
such a retrieval the EVALIDator will return zeroes for the periodic inventories and the correct numbers for the
annual inventories. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
Previously reported issues with ratio estimates have been corrected.
FIDO Custom Reports are functioning properly.
FIADB was updated in June 2014 to include the new updated interpretation of the definition of
reserved status. All annual data was reanalyzed in accordance with this interpretation and some previously
published values have changed as a result. Change estimates were recomputed to account for any modifications.
