Estimation of total height, growth, and mortality of forest trees in Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
A model for predicting total tree height as a function of tree diameter was calibrated for twelve tree species common to the Missouri Ozarks. Model coefficients were derived from nearly 10,000 observed trees. The calibrated model did a good job...
Stand structure development effects on wood quality of Melina (Gmelina arborea roxb.)
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
A stem analysis was perform to examines the effects of thinning treatments on Melina (Gmelina arborea) wood quality and tree architecture in the North Coast of Colombia. 27 plots under forest management regimes and age ...
Analysis of landscape characteristics surrounding deer vehicle accidents in St. Louis County, Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
). This study quantifies landscape factors that contribute to deer vehicle accidents in St. Louis County, Missouri, and provides a predictive model of areas in which DVA's would likely be found. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) was used to plot deer...
Simulating cottonwood tree growth in flood plains using the LIGNUM modeling method
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
simulation model, was applied to simulation of the cottonwood growth in a flood plain area in central Missouri. The key characteristics of the LIGNUM model are the linkage between tree spatial structure and physiological function. L-system was adopted...
