Discussion Paper: König-Faustmannism: A Critique
Abstract:The König-Faustmann form of marginal analysis derives a valid estimate of the financially optimal rotation for individual trees and other indivisible forest capital: forests whose age-class structure is not to be changed. For divisible capital, the applicable form of the marginal model derives a shorter rotation because it allows for interactions among forest compartments. For. Sci. 36(1):169-174.
