DescriptionThe Weibull distribution is presented as a flexible model of survival in even-aged stands. The data necessary for both the complete and censored Weibull distribution and their applications are discussed. A case study is presented using the Weibull distribution to model survival in even-aged stands of loblolly pine from ages 3 to 14. Within the limitations of the data an adequate model was obtained.
