AbstractFull Text

Structural characteristics of stands were evaluated on a data set comprising 10 plots dominated by young Silver fir and Norway spruce. Statistical tests and cluster analysis identified two major structural groupings, which were related to the stand age but not to the stand age pattern. All younger, ...
