Process-based forest ecosystem models vary from simple physiological, complex physiological, to hybrid empirical-physiological models. Previous studies indicate that complex models provide the best prediction at plot scale with a temporal extent of less than 10 years, however, it is largely untested as to whether complex models outperform the other two(More)
Quantitative models of forest dynamics have followed a progression toward methods with increased detail, complexity, and spatial extent. We highlight milestones in the development of forest dynamics models and identify future research and application opportunities. We reviewed milestones in the evolution of forest dynamics models from the 1930s to the(More)
The Central Hardwood Forest (CHF) in the United States is currently a major carbon sink, there are uncertainties in how long the current carbon sink will persist and if the CHF will eventually become a carbon source. We used a multi-model ensemble to investigate aboveground carbon density of the CHF from 2010 to 2300 under current climate. Simulations were(More)
