TREE-SIZE CATEGORIES
Background: Accurate estimations of aboveground biomass (AGB) based on allometric models are needed to implement climate-change mitigation strategies. However, allometry can change with tree size. Questions: Does allometry in a tropical dry forest change with tree size? Does combining different allometric equations provide better AGB estimates than using a single equation? Study site and dates: San Agustín Ejido, Yucatán, México, 2016. Methods: Forty-seven trees of 18 species with 2.5 to 41.5 cm in diameter at breast height (DBH) were sampled. Stems and branches were sectioned, and samples were dried and weighed to estimate tree AGB. Segmented linear regression was used to evaluate changes in allometry between DBH, height and AGB. Different equations were tested for each size category identified, and the best models and model-combinations selected.
