Description: Process models are powerful research tools for assessing the effects of multiple environmental stresses on forest plantations. These models are driven by interacting environmental variables and often include genetic factors necessary for assessing forest plantation growth over a range of different site, climate, and silvicultural conditions. However, process models are usually detailed and present complex modelling challenges that require innovative computing approaches. The authors have developed a hierarchical, parallel computing strategy for modelling forest plantations growing under multiple stresses. The strategy utilizes object-oriented programming to achieve computational efficiencies through distributed processing within a parallel computing network using the Microsoft Component Object Model (COM). The authors present this strategy as an alternative for process modelling of forest plantations.

Keywords: object-oriented programming, global climate change, Component Object Model (COM), multiple stresses
