Share:

Description

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

Usage

1
allometryCutini2009(x, diameter)

Arguments

x

a data frame holding diameters of branches

diameter

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

Value

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

Note

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
