DescriptionBiomass prediction equations were developed for 23 northeastern Minnesota shrub species. The allowmetric function was used to predict leaf, current annual woody twig, stem, and total woody biomass (dry grass), using stem diameter class estimated to the nearest 0.25 cm class at 15 cm above ground level as the independent variable.
