DescriptionSize-based distributions arise in several contexts in forestry and ecology. Simple power relationships (e.g., basal area and diameter at breast height) between variables are one such area of interest arising from a modeling perspective. Another, probability proportional to size sampline (PPS), is found in the most widely used methods for sampling standing or dead and downed material in the forest.
