Title: Equations for Estimating Biomass of Herbaceous and Woody Vegetation in Early-Successional Southern Appalachian Pine-Hardwood Forests

Author: Elliott, Katherine J.; Clinton, Barton D.;

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Allometric equations were developed to predict aboveground dry weight of herbaceous and woody species on prescribe-burned sites in the Southern Appalachians. Best-fit least-square regression models were developed using diamet,er, height, or both, as the independent variables and dry weight as the dependent variable. Coefficients of determination for the selected total biomass models ranged from 0.620 to 0.992 for herbaceous species and from 0.698 to 0.999 for the woody species. Equations for foliage biomass generally had lower coefficients of determination t ban did equations for either st,em or total blornass of woody species.
