McDill and Amateis (1992) developed a dimensionally compatible height growth model which may be applied as either a base-age specific or a base-age invariant site index model. Its relative performance was compared with four published site index models on three stem analysis data sets from Ontario and the Northwest Territories of Canada. Results indicated that the modified McDill and Amateis (1992) model performed as well as, if not better than, the other models.
