SOARES, Carlos Pedro Boechat et al. Hipsometric, volumetric and taper equations for eleven Brazilian native species. Rev. Árvore [online]. 2011, vol.35, n.5, pp.1039-1053. ISSN 0100-6762.

The objective of this study was to adjust hypsometric, volumetric and taper equations for eleven native species planted in experimental plots, at Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. After analysis, it was verified that: a) the hipsometric model 2 best adjusted for nine species; b) the volumetric model 2 was best adjusted to the data of main stem volume with bark for six species, while the volumetric model was better adjusted for five species; c) Taper model 3 showed better performance, being selected to describe the profile stem of ten species.

Keywords : Alometric equations; Brazilian native species; Atlantic Rainforest.
