Abstract The hypothesis that size-density relationships result from the distribution of constant amounts of population leaf area among varying numbers of trees per unit area, was modified to include the influence of population density on canopy structure. The modification was made possible with the constant-stress model of stem formation. The modified hypothesis was tested in unmanaged, even-aged stands of lodgepole pine ( Pinus contorta var. latifolia Engelm.) in northern Utah. Using mean leaf… CONTINUE READING
