Measurement of stand classification based on height over age: Part 3.

Kangas Y. (1977). Measurement of stand classification based on height over age: Part 3. Acta Forestalia Fennica no. 160 article id 7594. https://doi.org/10.14214/aff.7594


The data used to control the developed methods are presented in chapter two. The third chapter presents the statistical analysis conducted. The factor analysis shows that tree stand characteristics must be divided into three factors to able the information needed for site indexing to distinguish different site classes. The phases of model development are presented and the results of calculations with control data are shown.   

The results indicate that for calculations of nature-normal forests the suitable amount of tree stand characters for creating the site indexing function, is three.  These are: number of trees (N), basal area of the stand (G) and mean height (H).

The PDF contains a summary in Finnish.
