A Mathematical Expression for Height Curves
Abstract:In spite of the fact that in forest mensuration graphical methods are being replaced by unbiased computational methods, height curves are usually drawn as free hand curves. Apart from the elimination of any personal bias in the plotting of height curves, the computational method proposed in the following article permits a test of the significance between two or more height curves. It opens new possibilities for a better determination of site index, especially in uneven-aged stands.
