Standard total cubic foot volume equations were derived from models used to predict the ratio of merchantable to total cubic foot volume. This was accomplished by an extension of the methods used by Clutter (1980) to derive taper equations from variable-top merchantable volume equations. Taper curves developed by using the derived volume equation were constrained to pass through stump diameter at stump height. Together with Clutter's (1980) results, the volume equation developed was part of a compatible system of total volume and taper equations derived from a specified form of diameter-based merchantable to total volume ratio model.
