Estimating psychological disutility from damaged forest stands


, : Estimating psychological disutility from damaged forest stands. Forest Science 24(3): 424-432

A paired comparison methodology was used to scale preferences for landscapes depicted in 35mm colour-slides. Several subject groups, varying in their familiarity with forestry, evaluated a series of photographically controlled forest scenes with various levels of insect damage. Some subjects were told that insect damage was present (experimental), others were not (control). Logarithmic regression models were used to predict preference from the amount of visible damage.
