Diameter distributions and structural sustainability in forests



Diameter distributions and structural sustainability in forests



Forest Ecology and Management 222(1/3): 427-438



For over a century, the negative exponential relationship of tree density to diameter has been observed and considered an indicator of equilibrium forest structure, especially at the stand level.
