Description: This note seeks to extend the utility of size-biased distribution theory as applied to forestry through two relationships regarding the quadratic mean stand diameter. First, the quadratic mean stand diameter's relationship to the harmonic mean basal area for horizontal point sampling, which has been known algebraically from early on, is proved under size-biased distribution theory. Second, a new result, which may prove most valuable in viewing the graphical representation of assumed distributions, is also derived. The results are also shown to apply to the basal area - size distribution, providing a unique duality between the two means.
