Diameter Growth of Yellow Birch Not Closely Related to Density
Abstract:Data are presented that characterize seasonal diameter growth of yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britton). Curves illustrate variabilitiy in initiatian, duration, and rates of diameter increment among dominant and co-dominant trees on a poorly drained podzol soil. This study indicates, within limits of the data, little or no relation between annual diameter growth and tree size or plot density.
