The following result gives concrete formulas for the Poincare bisectors in the upper half-space model.
1] are two equal angles of 90[degrees]--[alpha], 90[degrees]--[beta] and 90[degrees]--[gamma], and therefore the heights of the original triangle [DELTA]ABC are the bisectors of the orthic triangle [DELTA][A.

In these studies, the individual area per plant was estimated using the area of Thiessen polygons that are defined as the smallest polygons that can be obtained by erecting perpendicular bisectors to the horizontal lines joining the center of a plant to the centers of its neighboring competitors.
Note that this definition and procedure for obtaining Sette-Ahlstrom areas is equivalent to constructing polygons manually using perpendicular bisectors and measuring their areas (Sette and Ahlstrom, 1948).
