Forest dynamics, growth and yield : from measurement to model

Author: Hans Pretzsch
Publisher: Berlin ; London : Springer, 2009.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
How do tree crowns, trees or forest stands respond to thinning in the long term? What effect do tree species mixtures and multi-layering have on the productivity and stability of trees, stands or forest enterprises? This book focuses on the experimental designs, analytical methods, general relationships and models for answering such questions.
