Height–diameter modeling is most often performed using non-linear regression models based on ordinary differential equations. In this study, new models of tree height dynamics involving a stochastic differential equation and mixed-effects parameters are examined. We use a stochastic differential equation to describe the dynamics of the height of an(More)
The aim of this paper is twofold: to introduce the mathematics of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) for forest dynamics modeling and to describe how such a model can be applied to aid our understanding of tree height distribution corresponding to a given diameter using the large dataset provided by the Lithuanian National Forest Inventory (LNFI).(More)
In this paper we use a stochastic differential equation to describe the dynamic evolution of the height of an individual tree. The first model is defined by Gompertz shape stochastic differential equation. The second model is defined by Gompertz stochastic differential equation with a threshold parameter. This model can be considered as an extension of the(More)
