Notes: Development of Taper Functions from Variable-Top Merchantable Volume Equations
Abstract:Merchantable volume equations are now being used where the merchantable diameter desired is entered as an argument of the equation. Any equation of this type implicitly defines an associated taper function. The mathematical form of this taper function is derived for a commonly used class of variable-top merchantable volume equations. Forest Sci. 26:117-120.
