Title: Estimating leaf area and leaf biomass of open-grown deciduous urban trees
Author: Nowak, David J.
Source: Forest Science. 42(4): 504-507.
Description: Logarithmic regression equations were developed to predict leaf area and leaf biomass for open-grown deciduous urban trees based on stem diameter and crown parameters. Equations based on crown parameters produced more reliable estimates. The equations can be used to help quantify forest structure and functions, particularly in urbanizing and urban/suburban areas.
Keywords: allometric equations, urban vegetation, urban ecology
