Abstract: The purpose of this study was to gain reliable information on the distribution of aboveground biomass of an important component of the woodlands of north-central New Mexico, and to develop prediction equations that may be used to quickly compute biomass from relatively simple field measurements. Improved understanding of and ability to predict aboveground biomass distribution in open-grown pinon pine will provide a framework of information that will allow improved understanding of ecosystem processes.

Keywords: Pinon-juniper and juniper woodlands, ponderosa pine forests, ecology, management, restoration, southwestern United States
