A Diameter-Class Matrix Model for Southeastern U.S. Coastal Plain Bottomland Hardwood Stands

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Buy Article:


Matrix models for 5-year projections of natural bottomland hardwood stands in the Southeastern Coastal Plain are presented. The diameter distribution projection of species groups is based on diameter class, stand basal area, and trees per ac. The models were developed from data collected on 43 permanent 0.2 ac plots installed on six site types in the southeast. Predictions, based on 25 continuous forest inventory plots, show good agreement between the actual and projected diameter distributions. The models will be useful for short-term inventory projection and inclusion in forest management optimization routines. South. J. Appl. For. 14(4):189-195.
