Presents methods for synthesizing information from existing biomass literature when making biomass assessments over extensive geographic areas, such as for a state or region. Described are general applications to the northeastern United States, and specific applications to Ohio. Tables of appropriate regression equations and the tree and shrub species to which these equations can be applied are presented.
