Research article Stand modelling for radiata pine in New Zealand
Intensive forest management requires reliable information on stand dynamics, growth, and yield. A variety of modelling options will probably be required to provide information on which to base the full spectrum of forest management decisions. In this paper, modelling alternatives are regarded as part of a continuum of complementary systems rather than as mutually exclusive options. A brief overview of selected stand modelling alternatives is given, with some discussion of general situations for which the various approaches might prove efficient; and data bases for stand modelling are considered. Suggestions are offered for modelling Pinus radiata stands in New Zealand. (no keywords)
