Competition-dependent modelling of foliage biomass in forest stands



Competition-dependent modelling of foliage biomass in forest stands



Trees: Structure and Function 18(5): 596-607



Currently, foliage biomass is estimated based on stem diameter or basal area. However, it is questionable whether the relations between foliage and stem observed from plantations of a single tree species can be applied to stands of different structure or species composition. In this paper, a procedure is presented to simulate foliage and branch biomass of tree crowns relative to crown size and light competition.
