Forestry Models:

4C - FORESEE - FORESt Ecosystems in a Changing Environment has been developed to describe long-term forest behaviour under changing environmental conditions. It describes processes on tree and stand level basing on findings from eco-physiological experiments, long term observations and physiological modelling on a intermediate level of complexity.
