Description: The first ever Landscape State-and-Transition Simulation Modeling Conference was held from June 14â€“16, 2011, in Portland Oregon. The conference brought together over 70 users of state-and-transition simulation modeling toolsâ€”the Vegetation Dynamics Development Tool (VDDT), the Tool for Exploratory Landscape Analysis (TELSA) and the Path Landscape Model. The goal of the conference was to (1) provide opportunities for sharing experiences with different applications of the tools, (2) identify major existing conceptual or technological gaps, and develop goals for future state-and-transition simulation model (STSM) development, and (3) start building an international network of STSM users. Eighteen oral presentations and thirteen posters were presented. This proceeding includes thirteen papers that build on some key STSM concepts, applications, and innovations from that conference, and shares them with a wider audience. The goal of these proceedings is to provide a state-of-the-science reference for STSM modelers and users. All papers were peer-reviewed by two blind reviewers and one editor. The presentation of these papers reveals that the STSM approach has been applied to a wide range of management and land-use questions and ecosystems, with an equally wide variation in the amounts of scientific data and expert knowledge available for model parameterization.
Keywords: Climate change, FVS, ILAP, LANDFIRE, Path Landscape Model, state and transition simulation model, TELSA, vegetation dynamics, vegetation ecology, VDDT
