Designing a LANDIS PRO harvest module and examining the effects of temporal resolution on simulation outcomes
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
and testing of a disturbance module that simulates harvest events in the LANDIS PRO model. The design operates on quantitative attributes such as number of trees and basal area to control harvest events, giving the user the ability to parameterize harvest...
Simulating the effects of riparian zone delineation and management practices on landscape pattern and timber production
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2004)
to erosion or pollutant discharge. Analyzing the effects of different buffering scenarios upon landscape pattern and timber volume provides forest managers with better tools for deciding the best action to take in balancing timber harvest with the biological...
Developing a stand density module in LANDIS to improve simulation realism of stand dynamics
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Long-term landscape modeling is dependent on various forest dynamics including large-scale disturbances, environmental effects, land management and stand-scale succession. The stand density module was designed for LANDIS ...
Evaluation of the Private Forestland Ownership Paracelization and its effects on the forest landscape in the southeastern Missouri Ozarks
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
This study investigates the impacts of the forestland ownership parcelization on species composition, age structure and spatial pattern of the forest landscape. First, a computer model was developed to create ownership ...
