The growing need for information about carbon stocks and sequestration by forests has made forest biomass estimation a relevant issue, far more important in the case of fast growing and intensively managed species such as Eucalyptus globulus Labill.. Several methods have been used to estimate the existing biomass at stand level, but using data resulting from forest inventories is simpler and easily applicable. This thesis, starting from the work already developed for the Globulus 3.0 model, developed two systems of allometric equations for predicting total aboveground biomass and the different biomass components for Eucalyptus globulus Labill. guarantying the equality of the estimate of total aboveground biomass with the sum of the estimates for the different biomass components. The systems use as regressors just stand variables that are usually a result of forest inventories so that they can be easily applicable .
