Contents Notes
How do tree crowns, trees or forest stands respond to thinning in the long term? What effect do tree species mixtures and multi-layering have on the productivity and stability of trees, stands or forest enterprises? This book focuses on the experimental designs, analytical methods, general relationships and models for answering such questions. Forest dynamics, growth, and yield -- A review, analysis of the present state, and perspective -- From primary production to growth and harvestable yield and vice versa: specific definitions and the link between two branches of forest science -- Brief history and profile of long-term growth and yield research -- Planning forest growth and yield experiments -- Description and quantification of silvicultural prescriptions -- Standard analysis of long-term experimental plots -- Description and analysis of stand structures -- Growing space and competitive situation of individual trees -- Effects of species mixture on tree and stand growth -- Growth relationships and their biometric formulation -- Forest growth models -- Evaluation and standard description of growth models Application of forest simulation models for decision support in practice -- Diagnosis of growth disturbances -- Pathways to system understanding and management.
