Density-dependent vulnerability of forest ecosystems to drought

Publications Posted on: September 08, 2017
Climate models predict increasing drought intensity and frequency for many regions, which may have negative consequences for tree recruitment, growth and mortality, as well as forest ecosystem services. Furthermore, practical strategies for minimizing vulnerability to drought are limited.

Complex compatible taper and volume estimation systems for red and loblolly pine

Publications Posted on: April 23, 2013
Five equation systems are described which can be used to estimate upper stem diameter, total individual tree cubic-foot volume, and merchantable cubic-foot volumes to any merchantability imit (expressed in terms of diameter or height), both inside and outside bark. The equations provide consistent results since they are mathematically related and are fit using stem analysis data from plantation-grown red and loblolly pine.
