Abstract

Linking models of different scales (e.g., process, tree-stand-ecosystem) is essential for furthering our understanding of stand, climatic, and edaphic effects on tree growth and forest productivity. Moreover, linking existing models that differ in scale and levels of resolution quickly identifies knowledge gaps in information required to scale from one level to another, indentifies firture research needs to fill these information gaps, and provides a test of the present state of modeling sciences for creating model systems for predicting responses to natural and human-based disturbances.
