Table 4 The parameters of allometric models for predicting aboveground biomass of moso bamboo by DBH

From: Culm height development, biomass accumulation and carbon storage in an initial growth stage for a fast-growing moso bamboo (Phyllostachy pubescens)

Items Y = a × DBH b
a b R 2 RMSE a
Initial stage (this study) 5.43 × 10−3 3.44 0.97 0.869

  1. a RMSE is the smallest root mean squared error and its unit is m
  2. bThe 5-year-old bamboo model was cited from Yen and Lee (2011)
