Tropical tree height-diameter ( H:D) relationships may vary by forest type and region making large-scale estimates of above-ground biomass subject to bias if they ignore these differences in stem allometry. We have therefore developed a new global tropical forest database consisting of 39 955 concurrent H andD measurements encompassing 283 sites in 22 tropical countries. Utilising this database, our objectives were: 1. to determine ifH:D relationships differ by geographic region and forest type… CONTINUE READING
