Structure Equation Modeling Basic Assumptions and Concepts: A Novices Guide (Published)

The modern tools and techniques of research make the decision making easy. The present study focused on structure equation modeling (SEM) technique of research. SEM is one of widely recognized technique in research. This paper outlined basic working of SEM its modeling criteria, assumptions and concepts. A brief idea about second generation structure equation modeling was described in the paper. This study will allow the readers to develop understanding of SEM and its applications in different fields.

ASSESSMENT OF SECOND GENERATION GMELINA ARBOREA STOCK IN AWI, NIGERIA (Published)

Second generation Gmelina arborea coppice plantation in Awi, Cross River State, Nigeria was assessed for stocking and yield. The plantation was divided into five strata (A-E), a stratified random sampling technique was used to select sample plots, Gmelina arborea trees that were 30cm and above were measured. Results revealed that the plantation had 246 trees/ha stocking rate; representing 19.2% stocking density and mean volume of 172.54M3/ha. It was observed that improved silvicultural operations such as thinning, pruning, fire tracing and prevention illegal farming activities would have increased the yield in the plantation. Government should maintain and fill the existing gaps in the plantation by replanting
