SILVA-GARCIA, Jesús Eduardo; AGUIRRE-CALDERON, Oscar Alberto; ALANIS-RODRIGUEZ, Eduardo  e  GONZALEZ-TAGLE, Marco Aurelio. Volume equations for Prosopis articulata S. Watson and Lysiloma divaricata (Jacq.) J. F. Macbr. in northwestern Mexico. Rev. mex. de cienc. forestales [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.50, pp.415-438.

Allometric models are a tool of great importance for forest management, as they allow reliable estimations of the volume of both individual trees and forest stands, as well as the construction of volume tables in order to facilitate the quantification of timber stocks. In the present work, data of 160 trees were adjusted; 80 trees of each species were cut, covering all the diameter categories; the variables measured were: normal diameter (D), base diameter (DB) total height (H), and crown diameter (DC), as well as the diameters and lengths of each of the branches with a diameter above 6 cm at its base. Linear, multiple and nonlinear regression models with one and two independent variables were tested to estimate the total stem volume with bark. For the selection of the best model, the RMSE, adjusted R2 and the level of significance of the parameters were taken into account. For the prediction of the total volume according to the normal diameter, the allometric model of Berkhout presented better adjustments, with R2 of 0.9053 and RMSE of 0.0432 for Prosopis articulata and R2 of 0.8178, as well as RMSE of 0.1048 for Lysiloma divaricata. Using the variables normal diameter and total height, the best adjustments were obtained with the Schumacher-Hall model, with values of 0.9139 in R2 and RMSE of 0.0411 for Prosopis articulata. For Lysiloma divaricata the best fit model was the Spurr potential with R2 of 0.7936 and a value of RMSE of 0.1118.
