About the Author

Dick J. Brus worked as a researcher and statistics teacher at the Wageningen University and Research (Netherlands) for 38 years. His main fields of interest are sampling theory and geostatistics. He has gathered rich research experience in developing and applying statistical methods for natural resources inventory and monitoring. In 2015, he was appointed Adjunct Professor at Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing, China. He has published about 100 papers in peer-reviewed, international journals. He is second co-author of the book 'Sampling for Natural Resource Monitoring', published in 2006 by Springer. This book is widely acclaimed in soil, earth, environmental, agricultural and statistical science. Since January 1, 2022 he is retired and lives a joyful life in the countryside, where he grows vegetables in the garden, goes on cycling tours and sings in a choir. Every now and then, during rainy days, he works as a private contractor for the sole proprietorship Spatial Sampling registered with the Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands.


"What makes this book different is the level of detail at which sensitive issues on spatial sampling designs provided by the specialized literature are discussed and the strong way in which the author constructs his arguments. Dick J. Brus proposes a valuable book, equally complex and accessible, a practical grounded resource for researchers, master and doctoral students interested in spatial sampling problems, sampling designs, and subsequent inferences."
~Anca Vitcu, ISCB Book Reviews
