Table 1 Variance measured for MPD (Mean Proportional Differences) and MSE (Mean Square Error) differences, and WCI (Width of the Confidence Interval) obtained for forest time series that met three, two, one, and none of the proposed criteria. Different letters indicate significant differences (F test, P < 0.05).
