  1. a Litter and shrub biomass measures were derived from Ottmar and Vihnanek 2000.
  2. b Shrub and tree density measures were derived from Ottmar and Vihnanek 2000.
  3. c Foliage biomasses were derived from equations developed by Schroder et al. 1997, MacLein and Wein 1976 (cited in Jenkins et al. 2003).
  4. d Agriculture biomasses were estimated from a South Carolina coastal plain wheat field in mid-May (Bauer et al. 1998).
