Efficacy of generic allometric equations for estimating biomass: a test in Japanese natural forests. Ecological Applications 25:14331446. http://dx.doi.org/10.1890/14-0175.1

Appendix A. Species used for the development of generic allometric models and a description of the study sites in the Japanese biomass data set.

Table A1. Number of tree samples for aboveground (Abov.), stem and branch (St.Br.), leaf, and root biomass, the number of sites where the species was sampled (No. sites), and the tree size are shown. Funct. type is tree functional type (DA: deciduous angiosperm; EA: evergreen angiosperm; EG: evergreen gymnosperm), DBH is stem diameter at breast height.

Notes: Latitude, longitude, forest type, altitude, successional status (Succ. status), number of sampled trees for aboveground (Above.) and root biomass, number of sampled species (Sp.), tree stem diameter at breast height (DBH), and source of data. Sites with “A” in Local model were used to create local models for aboveground, stem, branch, and leaf biomass, and sites with “R” for root biomass. Forest types: boreal (Boreal), cool temperate (CoolTemp), warm temp (WarmTemp), subalpine (SubAlpi), subtropical (SubTrop). Successional status: old-growth (OG) and secondary (S) forests. Empty cells in altitude and successional status are without information.
