Height – diameter equations for boreal tree species in Ontario using a mixed-effects modeling approach

  title={Height – diameter equations for boreal tree species in Ontario using a mixed-effects modeling approach},
  author={Mahadev Sharma and John Parton},
Height–diameter relationships based on stand characteristics (trees/ha, basal area, and dominant stand height) were investigated for balsam fir, balsam poplar, black spruce, jack pine, red pine, trembling aspen, white birch, and white spruce using data from permanent growth study plots in northern Ontario, Canada. Approximately half the data were used to estimate model parameters with the rest used for model evaluation. Multiple Chapman–Richards functions with parameters expressed in terms of… CONTINUE READING
