    Models to assist management of lowland forests in Tanzania are in most cases lacking. Using a sample of 60 trees which were destructively harvested from both dry and wet lowland forests of Dindili in Morogoro Region (30 trees) and Rondo in Lindi Region (30 trees), respectively, this study developed site specific and general models for estimating total tree volume and aboveground by:   The average understory aboveground carbon density was estimated to be Mg ha −1, for a total estimate of Tg carbon across all managed forest land in the US (approximately 2% of the total aboveground live tree carbon pool). This estimate is more than twice as low as previous FIA modeled estimates that did not rely on understory Cited by: 3.

Maines forest lands included estimates of total forest biomass based on an evaluation of available biomass-estimation techniques found in the literature. When applied to the forest resource inventory of Maine these regression equations yielded an estimate of more than milliondry tons of biomass on timberland and nearly milliondry tons of biomass on all forest land.

The resultant aboveground biomass density matches well with the data from Forest Inventory and Analysis program at both state and pixel levels. Citation: Zhang, X., and S.

Forest plays a special role in carbon sequestration and thus mitigating climate change. However, the large uncertainty in biomass estimation is unable to meet the requirement of the accurate carbon accounting.

The use of a suitable and rigor method to accurately estimate forest biomass is significant. Moreover, the world is increasingly facing the conflicting pressures of Cited by: 3.

Total forest biomass for nine countries was estimated to be Pg (1 Pg = 10 15 g), or an average potential biomass density (PBD) of Mg/ha. The potential forest biomass map was then masked with a map of forest locations forresulting in a map of the potential biomass density occurring on locations still in forest in Cited by:   Estimation of forest biomass on the regional and global scale is of great importance.

Many studies have demonstrated that lidar is an accurate tool for estimating forest aboveground biomass.

However, results vary with forest types, terrain conditions and the quality of the lidar data. In this study, we investigated the utility of low density lidar data (estimating forest Cited by: and total aboveground biomass. We used these equations to estimate per-hectare aboveground biomass, nitrogen (N), and carbon (C) content, and compared these results to (1) estimates based on biomass equations published in other studies, and (2) estimates made using the mean-tree method rather than allometric by: 7.

Biomass Volume Estimation. The National Biomass Estimator Library (NBEL) was developed by the Forest Management Service Center (FMSC) as a sister library to the National Volume Estimator Library (NVEL). Both open-source libraries provided a standard interface for the inclusion of volume and biomass models into cruising, planning, and stand exam software.

The best-fit equations for total aboveground biomass that were based on combinations of diameter at breast height, and total and commercial height as independent variables had R2 values between and Models recommended for estimating total aboveground biomass.

Since stem volume (x) in ts the influence of forest age, site class, stand density, and other biotic and abiotic factors on forest biomass, it can be used to calculate forest biomass, based on the corresponding area and volume in forest inventory data, even without information of forest age, site class, or any others (Fang et al., a, Fang et al., b).Cited by: Branchwood biomass was estimated as a part of a complete project in estimating the total biomass of a tropical hill forest stand.

Thirty sample trees were felled. Tree biomass values were regressed with all the measurable parameters and their transformations. A logarithmic transformation with branch-form quotient gave the best-fit by: 3.

Introduction. Fine and coarse roots are major contributors to the total biomass pools of forest and woodland ecosystems, and play critical roles in the cycling and allocation of carbon (C) and nutrients (Clark et al.,Brunner and Godbold,Malhi et al.,Smyth et al.,Raich et al., ).A significant fraction of C assimilated by plants through photosynthesis is Cited by: The LAMP method found that the standing total AGB was t/ha at a 95% confidence level and the field based Forest Resource Assessment (FRA) Nepal field plot AGB estimate was /ha.
