Individual Tree Diameter and Height Growth Models for 30 Tree Species in Mixed-Species and Uneven-Aged Forests of Mexico
Lack of knowledge of individual tree growth in species-rich, mixed forest ecosystems impedes their sustainable management. In this study, species-specific models for predicting individual diameter at breast height (dbh) ...
Compatible Taper and Volume Systems Based on Volume Ratio Models for Four Pine Species in Oaxaca Mexico
Estimating tree volume components is an essential element in sustainable forest management. Compatible taper and merchantable outside-bark volume systems based on volume ratio models were globally fitted to four pine species ...
Simultaneous optimization of even flow and land and timber value in forest planning: a continuous approach
Background: Forest management planning involves deciding which silvicultural treatment should be applied to each stand and at what time to best meet the objectives established for the forest. For this, many mathematical ...
Forecasting Variations in Profitability and Silviculture under Climate Change of Radiata Pine Plantations through Differentiable Optimization
Climate change might entail significant alterations in future forest productivity, profitability and management. In this work, we estimated the financial profitability (Soil Expectation Value, SEV) of a set of radiata pine ...
Delimiting the spatio-temporal uncertainty of climate-sensitive forest productivity projections using Support Vector Regression
As climate change makes many traditional empirical growth approaches not functional for forest dynamics modelling, new climate-sensitive models are needed. However, using these newly developed models for extrapolation, ...
