Notes: Percentile-Based Distributions Characterize Forest Stand Tables
Abstract:A satisfactory characterization of stand tables need not require a prior mathematical probability distribution. The method described here uses a system of percentiles defined across the range of the stand table. Based on a uniform distribution of tree frequency between adjacent percentiles, stems-per-acre are proportioned into diameter size classes. For. Sci. 33(2):570-576.
