Spatial distribution of biomass in forests of the eastern USA

Spatial distribution of biomass in forests of the eastern USA

Forest Ecology and Management 123(1): 81-90

A map of the biomass density and pools, at the county scale of resolution, was produced for all forests of the eastern USA using new approaches for converting inventoried wood volume to estimates of above- and below-ground biomass. Maps provide a visual representation of the pattern of forest biomass densities and pools over space that are useful for forest managers and decision makers, and as databases for verification of vegetation models.
