Table 6 Summary of differences in plot biomass when calculated using different allometric equations: local (presented in this study), Forest Inventory and Analysis Component Ratio Method (FIA-CRM), and Jenkins et al. [11]

From: Variability and uncertainty in forest biomass estimates from the tree to landscape scale: the role of allometric equations

Allometric equations compared Mean difference (Mg ha−1) Mean of absolute differences (Mg ha−1) Mean relative difference (%)
Local—Jenkins − 6.9 25.9 − 13.0
Local—FIA-CRM 37.3 37.9 28.7
Jenkins—FIA-CRM 44.2 44.8 32.9
  1. The mean of both the differences and the absolute value of the differences are presented as well as the mean relative difference
