- ... Predicting tree biomass and growth increments via allometric equations is routine in forestry, but this approach is problematic in old-growth forests unless equations are derived from trees spanning the full size range. Using intensive measurements of 27 standing Eucalyptus regnans trees 61.1–99.8m tall and 80–430years old in Tasmania, Victoria, and New Zealand, we develop allometric equations to ...
