Abstract

The report contains regression equations for calculations of biomass of several mainly Canadian forest species (trees, shrubs, lesser vegetation) and their components (leaves, branches, bole, bark, wood, roots, etc.).

The lists are arranged by plant species in alphabetical order of common names. Glossaries and a sketch define the tree components. Many pertinent references are given.
