AbstractFull Text

Artificial neural networks (ANN) stand out as alternative tools in forest modeling, with results often superior to traditional regression methods. This study aimed to evaluate whether the estimates of volume and height, obtained by artificial neural networks and allometric models, are compatible...

AbstractFull Text

Diameter and height are crucial parameters in forest inventories to determine the volume that is stored in the forest. The objective of this research was to generate an equation for eight federative entities that allows an accurate estimate of the timber volume of Abies religiosa in the center and...
