## Weibull distribution for characterising stem-diameter structure

Published

The Weibull density distribution is known as $f_w(dbh) = \frac{\gamma}{\beta}\left(\frac{dbh – \alpha}{\beta}\right)^{\gamma – 1} e^{-\left(\frac{dbh – \alpha}{\beta}\right)^\gamma}$, where $\alpha$ is the location, $\beta$ the scale and $\gamma$ is the shape parameter, i.e. the parameters of the Weibull distribution are interpretable, which is always a good property of models.The cumulative distribution function, i.e. the integral of… Continue reading Weibull distribution for characterising stem-diameter structure
