Stand volume tables for forest stands in Sicily

Piermaria Corona, Roberto Cibella, Donato Salvatore La Mela Veca


The aim of this study was to set up stand volume tables for easy and reliable estimation of the woody mass of coppices and high forest stands in Sicily. In this note we describe the statistical analyses which were carried out and we discuss results and their potential application. The use of stand volume tables is suggested mainly when it is possible to adopt quick, effective procedures for the assessment of the unitary basal area: in particular, the major potential is for surveys based upon relascope estimation of basal area in correspondence of sample points positioned according to probabilistic sampling schemes.
