Workpackage 2 - Forest Models

Enhance quality and consistency of forest modelling for the simulation at various scales of forest resources dynamics under alternative management and climatic scenarios.

Exchange forest growth models existing in Europe and Australasia, either process based and hybrids. Models will be tested and calibrated in different regions and for different species, namely fast-growing species. Another area of interest will be the use of forest models to assess the impact of pests and diseases as well as of intensification of silviculture. The use of models to analyse sustainability of forest management will also be covered. The operationalization of the use of models to support decision making in forest management and policy is a very important topic that might also gain from the exchange of experiences between the two continents.

Description of work

Activities will include staff exchange, joint research and networking, and will be organised in the three following tasks:
  1. review and exchange of forest growth models existing in Europe and Australasia, either process based and hybrids. Models will be tested and calibrated in different regions and for different species, namely fast-growing species of common interest.

  2. improvement of forest models for sustainability and risks assessment. An area of interest will be the use of forest models to assess the impacts of pests and diseases as well as of intensification of forest management.

  3. operationalization of the use of models and development of simulation tools to support decision making in forest management and planning under climate change scenarios.
