Leaf Area Allocation: How Does It Work?
To implement multiaged systems, managers need a flexible way to allocate growing space among age classes. A three-aged ponderosa pine structure in western Montana exemplifies a leaf area allocation approach. Given a description of a stand structure, the model predicts average diameters, stand density parameters, and volume increment for each stand component and for the total stand.
