Notes: Graphical Estimation of Quadratic Mean Diameters in the Line Intersect Method

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

An ad hoc method of deriving quadratic mean diameters for use in the line intersect method, without extra field work, is described. It requires an assumption that the diameters tallied in any actual line intersect survey are distributed according to a simple power law. The tallied frequencies are then graphed and a mathematical formula applied. The method adapts readily to any desired set of diameter classes. Forest Sci. 28:852-855.
