Modeling of Forests Fuels Load from Dasometric Attributes in Temperate Forests of Northern Mexico

M. Pompa-Garcia, M. Morales-Soto and D.A. Rodriguez-Trejo

Abstract:
The study of fuels is a factor to define the vulnerability of ecosystems to forest fires. The aim of this study was to model the dead fuel load based on mensuration attributes from forest management inventories. A scatter plot analysis from explanatory trends between the variables considered was performed using the stepwise regression method of SAS. The results showed that the depth of litter, total real stocks and intensities of cut, largely explain the dead fuel load as dependent variable. In addition, to discussing the benefits of statistics of the models studied, it has been concluded that the inventory data management programs are an efficient and inexpensive alternative to estimate forest fuel loads.
