SANTOS, Lidia et al. Relative Age and Passage Time for Eremanthus incanus (Less.) Less in A Recovery Area in the Municipality of Diamantina-MG. Floresta Ambient. [online]. 2017, vol.24, e20150262.  Epub Nov 16, 2016. ISSN 1415-0980.

This study aimed to determine the relative age and the passage time of Eremanthus incanus individuals present in a recovery area, with periodic evaluations over four years. Data were collected in the city of Diamantina-MG, through continuous forest inventories in an area of 2.0 hectares, totaling nine forest inventories, which were grouped in 3 to 5 cm diameter classes. Three models were tested to estimate the monthly diameter average periodic increment by diameter class center. Relative age and passage time were calculated based in the best equation. All three adjusted models were better with the 3 cm class range. The relative age and the passage time for E. incanus individuals to achieve the smallest class size was 4 and 2 years, respectively.

Keywords : periodic increment; forest management; diameter class center.
