QUINONEZ-BARRAZA, Gerónimo et al. Site index with complex polymorphism of forest stands in Durango, México. Agrociencia [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.4, pp.439-454. ISSN 2521-9766.

Modeling of dominant height growth and site index is a valuable tool for classifying productivity of forest lands and for defining forest management strategies; station quality is a criterion for defining the programming of forest interventions. The derivation of a dynamic equation is presented from the base model of Chapman-Richards, considering the parameter of the asymptote and of the exchange rate as a function of site quality. The dynamic equation obtained has complex polymorphism and multiple asymptotes, and was fitted for Pinus arizonica, P. durangensis, P. teocote, P. leiophylla and P. ayacahuite as a group and by species with dummy variables, and was compared with two GADA equations, with the same number of parameters. These are based on the models of Chapman Richards and Korf, which have been used in the modeling of dominant height and site index. The comparison indicated that the derived equation presented better parsimony in the algebraic expression that describes the productivity of the site and considered the variability of the potential of the site as a function of the asymptote. The dynamic equation can be used to predict dominant height growth and site index for the mixed stands of the study area, with similar growth rates for Pinus durangensis, P. ayacahuite and P. arizonica, that responds to the degree of association among these species; Pinus teocote and P. leiophylla present the lowest growth rates.
