Title: Development of a hybrid modeling approach for predicting intensively managed Douglas-fir growth at multiple scales.

Author: Weiskittel, A.; Maguire, D.; Monserud, R.;

Date: 2007

Source:

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Hybrid models offer the opportunity to improve future growth projections by combining advantages of both empirical and process-based modeling approaches. Hybrid models have been constructed in several regions and their performance relative to a purely empirical approach has varied. A hybrid model was constructed for intensively managed Douglas-fir plantations in the Pacific Northwest by embedding a hierarchy of components representing fundamental processes into a spatially implicit individual-tree model.

Keywords: Douglas-fir, growth projections, modeling
