Simulation of Forest Tree Mortality
Abstract:Several methods (discriminant analysis, Probit analysis, Logit analysis) were compared for the prediction of individual overstory tree mortality in northern hardwood stands in Wisconsin. A generalized form of the logistic equation provided the greatest discriminating power for predicting live and dead trees. Independent variables were tree diameter and diameter increment, competition index, and length of growth period. Forest Sci. 22:438-444.
