INT-RP-332: Volume and biomass for curlleaf cercocarpus in Nevada


Chojnacky, David C. Volume and biomass for curlleaf cercocarpus in Nevada. Research Paper INT-332 Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station; 1984. 8 p.

Volume and biomass equations were developed for curlleaf cercocarpus (Cercocarpus ledifolius Nutt.) in the Egan and Schell Mountains near Ely, NV. The equations predict cubic foot volume of wood and bark for variable minimum branch diameters. Wood density factors are given to convert volume predictions to pounds of fiber biomass. The reliability of the equations was assessed using the jackknife technique to construct confidence intervals.

Keywords: Cercocarpus, woodland, jackknife, specific gravity
