Forest Dynamics : An Ecological Model - 92 edition

Forest Dynamics : An Ecological Model (ISBN10: 0195065557; ISBN13: 9780195065558)
ISBN13: 978-0195065558
ISBN10: 0195065557

Summary: Over the past two decades, the author has developed and refined an extremely useful simulation model of forest growth. The JABOWA model was the first successful application of digital computer simulation to a complex natural ecosystem. Effects of global warming, acid rain, and commercial forest harvesting practices have been analyzed with this model. Offering a fresh perspective on ecological phenomena, Forest Dynamics provides all the information necessary to
understand and use the model. Written for students and professionals in forestry and ecology, the book sets the forest model within the broader context of the science of ecology and the ecological issues that confront society in the management of forests. It also explains the theoretical foundations of the model.
