Spatial pattern and process in forest stands within the Virginia piedmont

Druckenbrod, Daniel L; Shugart, Herman H; Davies, Ian

Description

Question: Underlying ecological processes have often been inferred from the analysis of spatial patterns in ecosystems. Using an individual-based model, we evaluate whether basic assumptions of species' life-history, drought-susceptibility, and shade tolerance generate dynamics that replicate patterns between and within forest stands. Location: Virginia piedmont, USA. Method: Model verification examines the transition in forest composition and stand structure between mesic, intermediate and...[Show more]
