Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)
Description: The modifier function used in STEMS (Stand and Tree Evaluation and Modeling System) mathematically represents the effect that the surrounding forest community has on the growth of an individual tree. This paper 1) develops the most recent modifier function, 2) discusses its form, 3) reports the results of the analysis with biological considerations and 4) evaluates the performance of this new model.
Keywords: growth model, competition, projection system, forest growth, Lake States species
