Abstract

The simulation of diameter distributions is an essential aid for a more efficient planning of the harvesting operations which usually represents a high percentage in costs associated with production of pulp. In this chapter Johnson’s SB probability density function has been used to model diameter distribution of Eucalyptus globulus Labill. in Portugal.
