Biomass and Leaf Area Estimators

Lead by: Jan Volney

Theme: Productivity

Status: Continuing

Participants

Background

Techniques are required to estimate biomass and leaf area in each compartment. These must rely on easily measured attributes such as tree height and sapwood basal area.

Objectives

To determine the most efficient allometric equations to estimate leaf area index, root biomass, foliage biomass, branch and stem biomass using easily measured tree attributes.
