Loss of aboveground forest biomass and landscape biomass variability in Missouri , US

  title={Loss of aboveground forest biomass and landscape biomass variability in Missouri , US},
  author={Brice B. Hanberry and Hong S. He and Stephen R. Shifley},
Disturbance regimes and forests have changed over time in the eastern United States. We examined effects of historical disturbance (circa 1813 to 1850) compared to current disturbance (circa 2004 to 2008) on aboveground, live tree biomass (for trees with diameters 13 cm) and landscape variation of biomass in forests of the Ozarks and Plains landscapes in Missouri, USA. We simulated 10,000 onehectare plots using random diameters generated from parameters of diameter distributions limited to… CONTINUE READING
