Jointly published by FAO and the French research centre CIRAD, the Manual for building tree volume and biomass allometric equations provides all the necessary information from the field work to the biomass estimation. The appropriate development and use of tree allometric equations are particularly important when assessing forest carbon stocks and carbon stock changes. This will help national policymakers to make informed decisions regarding bioenergy development and climate change mitigation activities. The Manual is designed for students, researchers and engineers who wish to acquire the knowledge and methodology to establish allometric equations to assess the volume, biomass or mineral mass of trees. It provides numerous examples and detailed technical advice, so there are few prerequisites for users.
