Experimental series: An experimental series consist of two or more experiments that are studied within and designed for the same purpose. So-called multi-site experiments are located on different sites, which together represent the statistical replicate.

Field experiment: Generally, a field experiment or a trial that is conducted outdoor to test or examine specific scientific hypotheses (in contrast to laboratory experiment, forest engineering and work science studies). Forest field experiments are performed on-site in a defined area to study the biological response to different treatments, to different units - or combined. The scale can vary from forest ecosystems, larger forest areas, forest stands, trees or tree components. The duration of field experiments varies depending on forest type and research objective. Long-term experiments often comprise the entire rotation or a considerable part of the life span of trees.
