Title: Comparison of yellow poplar growth models on the basis of derived growth analysis variables
Author: Jensen, Keith F.; Yaussy, Daniel A.;
Source: Tree Physiology. 1: 217-222.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Quadratic and cubic polynomials, and Gompertz and Richards asymptotic models were fitted to yellow poplar growth data. These data included height, leaf area, leaf weight and new shoot height for 23 weeks. Seven growth analysis variables were estimated from each function. The Gompertz and Richards models fitted the data best and provided the most accurate derived variables. However, the Richards model was more complex to fit.
