LEITE, Helio Garcia; GAMA, João Ricardo Vasconcellos; CRUZ, Jovane Pereira da  y  SOUZA, Agostinho Lopes de. Tapering function for Virola surinamensis (Roll.) Warb. Rev. Árvore [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.1, pp. 99-106. ISSN 1806-9088.

This study was carried out with the aim of generating a taper equation for Virola surinamensis (Roll.) Warb, which is among the main exported species by the wood industries from the Amazonian estuary. The Kozak (1969), Baldwin (1991), Demaerschalk (1972) and Garay (1979) mathematical models were tested. All the tested models estimated the diameter with good precision, however, the first three models resulted in inconsistency while estimating commercial height. The Garay model was chosen and used to generate a cubage curve for the species.

Palabras clave : Floodplain; forest management; taper; Virola surinamensis.
