[latex]{\LARGE BAL_i(t) = G(t) \cdot (1 – p_i(t))}[/latex] with [latex]{\LARGE p_i(t) = \frac{1}{G(t)} \sum\limits_{\leq g_i(t)} g_i(t)}[/latex] What does it mean? The formula quantifies the sum of the basal areas of all trees that are larger or equal in basal area compared to that of a given tree i at time t. It is the complement value… Continue reading Basal area in larger trees and the growth compensation point
