A Method for Determining the Quantity of Foliage per Acre of Woodland
Abstract:Accurate estimates of the leaf area per acre of forest stands are difficult to obtain, but they are none the less important in silvicultural, physiological, and ecological research. No entirely satisfactory method has yet been proposed for determining the total leaf area per acre. The method described in the following article has certain distinct advantages and should find broad use in forest research.
