A generic model of plantation growth was developed for Australia's National Carbon Accounting System to allow spatial estimation of carbon stocks over time. Unlike the primary goal of most forest growth models, which is to predict log volume at harvest age, the international guidelines for carbon accounting require estimation of current annual increments of total (above and belowground) biomass. In contrast to most commercial forestry systems that are concerned with rotations of many years,...[Show more]
