allometryCutini2009: Returns the biomass of a stone pine tree

Description Usage Arguments Value Note References See Also


Returns total biomass of a stone pine tree (wood and leaves, dry state) in kg given the diameter at breast height, using an allometric equation


allometryCutini2009(x, diameter)



a data frame holding diameters of branches


the name of the column holding diameter of the x data frame, diameters should be in cm


the total biomass of the branch of a stone pine (in kg, dry state)


Use this function at you own risk, it has been validated for trees (ie: >24 cm diameters).

The allometric equation takes the form of a pure quadratic equation
