A survey of cable logging contracts was conducted in 5 of the 8 Alpine countries, namely: France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Switzerland. The goals of the survey were to set a general reference for cable logging rates, ...
Effects of variable selection and processing of NIR and ATR-IR spectra on prediction of extractives content in Eucalyptus bosistoana heartwood
The use of quick attenuated total reflectance infrared (ATR-IR) spectroscopy and near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to predict extractives content (EC) in heartwood of E. bosistoana with partial least squares regression (PLSR) ...
Using soil-based and physiographic variables to improve stand growth equations in Uruguayan forest plantations
(Italian Society of Sivilculture and Forest Ecology (SISEF), 2019)
Information provided by traditional growth models is an essential input in decision making processes for managing planted forests. They are generally fitted using inventory data guaranteeing robustness and simplicity. The ...
