Development of Allometric Equations for Estimating Above-Ground Liana Biomass in Tropical Primary and Secondary Forests, Malaysia

Table 5

Allometric equations of mixed species for estimating total above-ground biomass (kg) of lianas.

#Equationc(±SE)α(±SE)β(±SE) (adjusted)FI

Total biomass = c + α D
Total biomass = c + α L
Total biomass = c + α D + β L
(Total biomass)0.9 = c + α D
Total biomass = c +
Log10 (total biomass) = c + α(log10D)
Log10 (total biomass) = c + α(log10D) + β(log10L)

#: equation number; D: liana diameter; L: liana length.
