Title: A regression-adjusted approach can estimate competing biomass

Author: Miller, James H.

Date: 1983

Source: In: Proceedings Second Biennial Southern Silvicultural. Research Conference, 1982 November 4-5; Atlanta, GA. Gen . Tech. Rep. SE-24. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service: 344-351.

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: A method is presented for estimating above-ground herbaceous and woody biomass on competition research plots. On a set of destructively-sampled plots, an ocular estimate of biomass by vegetative component is first made, after which vegetation is clipped, dried, and weighed. Linear regressions are then calculated for each component between estimated and actual weights and are used to adjust ocular estimates of biomass on permanent or temporary plots. In trials, R2's ranged from 0.57 to 1.00. Training hints and calculation procedures are outlined.
