Models for forest
What kind of models are described?This website inventories available models and simulators which represent either forest growth and yield, or the dynamics of tree populations. Growth and yield models include quantitative wood production, as well as qualitative features related to timber, and wood properties related to growth processes. Forest dynamics models consider the structure and dynamics of tree populations : they focus on recruitment or regeneration, growth and mortality and operate at stand or lanscape levels. They can be connected to Geographic Information Systems for landscape management applications or to population genetics models in order to assess the consequences of management practices on genetic diversity.
