Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the application of a procedure referred to as step invariant for theoretical redistribution of diameters by class in a diameter distribution model, using the Weibull probability density function. Data from the first rotation of hybrid eucalyptus stands (Eucalyptus grandis x Eucalyptus urophylla) planted with spacings of 3 x 2 m, located in northeastern Bahia state were used. Measurements were taken annually with measurement age ranging between 25 and 89 months. The step invariant procedure provided satisfactory results in comparison to the traditional procedure, being therefore recommended for future applications due to its unbiased results and ease of fit.
