Relationships Between the Diameter Distributions Before and After Thinning

Buy Article:


Specific equations to predict the change in diameter with thinning are derived from the statistical consistency conditions that ensure that the thinned and the remaining distributions add up exactly to the before thinning distribution. These equations contain two parameters, the location separation parameter and the scale separation parameter, that quantify the degree of selectivity of a thinning operation. For. Sci. 37(2):552-559.
