npuletti/ForIT: Functions to estimate tree volume and phytomass in the Italian forest inventory 2005

Tabacchi et al. (2011) published a very detailed study producing a uniform system of functions to estimate tree volume and phytomass components (stem, branches, stool). The estimates of the 2005 Italian forest inventory ( are based on these functions. The study documents the domain of applicability of each function and the equations to quantify estimates accuracies for individual estimates as well as for aggregated estimates. This package makes the functions available in the R environment. Version 2 exposes two distinc functions for individual and summary estimates. To facilitate access to the functions, tree species identification is now based on EPPO species codes (
