Models and Tools

Understanding and predicting how forest management activities or natural disturbances affect species composition and structural development of forest stands is important for ecosystem restoration, forestry, and wildlife management. Scientists within the Upland Hardwood Ecology and Management Research Work Unit 4157, along with many collaborators and partners, have developed or contributed to the development of several models and tools that predict hardwood regeneration, stand development, growth and yield, site quality, landscape-level forest dynamics, and acorn production indices.
