c - biomass estimate includes only trees > 1 m in height.
d - biomass estimate based on the total harvest of 100 m2 circular plots.
e - biomass estimate based on proportional basal area allocation.
f - biomass estimate includes trees and understory, based on allometric equations from: Dice. 1970. Dissertation. University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA.
g - authors cite "natural regeneration"; based on context, assumed post-clear cut for this compilation.
h - approximate longitude.
i - approximate latitude.
j - GSP assigned average of other 2 plots at this site.
