Compatible Basal Area and Diameter Distribution Models for Thinned Loblolly Pine Plantations in Santa Catarina, Brazil

A simultaneous basal area growth and yield model based on diameter percentiles is developed. It is suggested that the diameter distribution percentiles essentially provide a description of the past stand history. The subsequent growth of a thinned or unthinned stand is affected by the shape and position of the diameter distribution percentiles. A noniterative technique is demonstrated for recovering the Weibull distribution parameters and generating a diameter distribution consistent with basal area. For. Sci. 33(1):43-51.
