Fagacées is a growth model that has been developed for pure Oak or Beech stand management in even-aged high forests and coppice with standards forests. It has been calibrated for the plain forests of northern France. This paper presents all the characteristics of this model: general structure, equations, and parameters. It can be classified as a(More)
The self-thinning relationship established by Reineke in 1933 assumes a relationship between the number of stems and the quadratic mean diameter in fully stocked pure stands. This rule is extensively used for management purposes, but it has been initially calibrated for pure, even-aged stands for relatively few species. Here, we extend this relationship to(More)
La génération de paysage naturel virtuel réaliste a beaucoup d'applications, aussi bien en infographie qu'en éco-logie par exemple. Ce problème est généralement traité en deux étapes. Une distribution des plantes sur le terrain est d'abord calculée en utilisant des modèles simplifiés de plantes. Puis ces modèles sont utilisés pour générer des(More)
Understanding biological invasion is currently one of the main scientific challenges for ecologists. The introduction process is crucial for the success of an invasion, especially when it involves a demographic bottleneck. A small introduced population is expected to face a higher risk of extinction before the first stage of invasion is complete if(More)
Sapwood area and the radial growth rate of the trunk follow the same pattern at breast height, with an initial increase and subsequent constant value, resulting from the increasing growth allocation toward the crown rather than tree decline. Heartwood area and heartwood volume in the trunk increase more rapidly after this shift occurs. Sapwood (SW) and(More)
