Evaluating Stand Density Index in Southern Piedmont silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) stands

Evaluating Stand Density Index in Southern Piedmont silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) stands

Italia Forestale e Montana 60(3): 269-286

Reineke's Stand Density Index (SDI) is a relative density index based on the self-thinning law, that is the inverse-proportional relationship between stand density and mean tree size in developing stands. A species' maximum SDI expresses the upper limit of all possible combination of density and mean tree size that can be observed in monospecific stands and represents maximum achievable competition.
