HOMEWORK: USING THE MEASURES OF DENSITY, DOMINANCE AND FREQUENCY TO MAKE INFERENCES ABOUT A SPECIES – (34 PTS) Name _________________________ Lab section 11 or 12 ___ Score ___________ The data in Table 8-10 represents data collected from three different species at two sites. Compute the basal area per trunk and per tree (6 pts). Table 8-1: Total basal area (m 2 ) per for three species at three sites with the area of each site=0.04 ha.
