Improved simulation of poorly drained forests using Biome-BGC
(Tree Physiology, 2007)
Summary Forested wetlands and peatlands are important in boreal and terrestrial biogeochemical cycling, but most general-purpose forest process models are designed and parameterized for upland systems. We describe changes ...
Reimplementation of the BIOME-BGC model to simulate successional change
(Heron Publishing, 2005)
Biogeochemical process models are increasingly employed to simulate current and future forest dynamics, but most simulate only a single canopy type. This limitation means that mixed stands, canopy succession and understory ...
Life cycle inventories of roundwood production in northern Wisconsin: Inputs into an industrial forest carbon budget
Carbon budgets are developed to understand ecosystem dynamics and are increasingly being used to develop global change policy. Traditionally, forest carbon budgets have focused on the biological carbon cycle; however, it ...
Fire as the dominant driver of central Canadian boreal forest carbon balance
Changes in climate, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and fire regimes have been occurring for decades in the global boreal forest, with future climate change likely to increase fire frequency ? the primary disturbance ...
Bryophyte cover estimation in a boreal black spruce forest using airborne lidar and multispectral sensors
Bryophytes are the dominant ground cover vegetation layer in many boreal forests and in some of these forests the net primary production of bryophytes exceeds the overstory. Therefore it is necessary to quantify their ...
