|Title:||SELECTION AND FIT OF SPATIAL MODELS TO ESTIMATE THE VOLUME IN A Eucalyptus sp PLANTATION|
|Publisher:||Editora UFLA - Universidade Federal de Lavras - UFLA|
|Description:||This paper is aimed at geostatistical models of prediction of the Eucaliptus’ volume. The available characteristics were genetic material (MG), density, dominant height (Hd), and basal area (Ab). Firstly, a model was chosen at the Hd, in which the MG and density were used as covariates. Next, we fitted a model to the Ab, where the Hd was a covariate, as well as the MG and density. Finally, we selected a model to volume, where all the others variables were used as covariates. We fitted the models with OLS, WLS, ML and REML methods. The MSE, the MSA and the AIC criteria were used to evaluate the predictions and to select the models. The WLS method gave the best adjustment to the dominant height, while the REML gave the best adjustment of the models to basal area and volume. The study allows us to verify that the use of a spatial component in the model and the inclusion of covariables at Hd, Ab and volume models improved their fit. As well as the prediction capacity of those variables were improved by using the covariates and spatial component and the improvement was more evident for the volume variable.|
