Notes: Common Regressions to Estimate Tree Biomass in Tropical Stands
Abstract:Regression analysis is often used to estimate tree biomass as a function of tree dimension, but most regressions are developed for a specific species and site. Broader applications may be valid in some cases. Regressions developed in Thailand for estimating bole weight and branch weight as a function of D²H were found to be applicable to the rain forest of Puerto Rico. These results suggest that common regressions also exist for estimating aboveground biomass and total tree biomass. Forest Sci. 24:110-114.
