LAHV

Leaf Area Height Volume metric

Calculates the leaf area height volume (LAHV) metric as described in Almeida et al. (2019).

Usage
LAHV(lad_profile, LAI.weighting = FALSE, height.weighting = FALSE)
Arguments
lad_profile

output of the lad.profile function

LAI.weighting

boolean, define if LAVH should be weighted by total LAI. default FALSE

height.weighting

boolean, define if LAVH should be weighted by the max height. default FALSE

Examples
# NOT RUN {
# Get the example laz file
normlas.file = system.file("extdata", "lidar_example.laz", package="leafR")

# Calculate LAD from voxelization
VOXELS_LAD = lad.voxels(normlas.file,
                        grain.size = 2)

# Calculate the LAD profile
lad_profile = lad.profile(VOXELS_LAD)

LAHV(lad_profile, LAI.weighting = FALSE, height.weighting = FALSE)
LAHV(lad_profile, LAI.weighting = TRUE, height.weighting = FALSE)
LAHV(lad_profile, LAI.weighting = FALSE, height.weighting = TRUE)
LAHV(lad_profile, LAI.weighting = TRUE, height.weighting = TRUE)
