Multiple Correlation in Predicting the Growth of Many-Aged Oak-Hickory Stands
Abstract:This article illustrates the use of multiple correlation in estimating volume growth per acre on small areas. In the particular stands studied, volume of growing stock was found to be the best single criterion of volume growth. If number of stems, average d.b.h., and growth in d.b.h. are also taken into consideration, these four independent variables represent approximately four-fifths of the factors that govern volume growth per acre.
