CABI, Jan 1, 2003 - Science - 416 pages
There are many theoretical approaches to modelling forest systems, but not all of them have valid practical applications. This book reviews current thinking on various models and presents applications in various contexts. Papers have been selected and developed from those presented at aworkshop held in Portugal in June 2002. Topics covered include: Forest reality and modelling strategies Mathematical approaches and reasoning Estimation processes Models, validation and decision under uncertainty Model archives and metadata
