The fundamental data for understanding the dynamics of forests are the diameters and species of the trees that make up the forest. Tree diameter changes for an individual tree as the tree grows. Over a given area, the statistical distribution of tree diameters changes as a complex consequence of tree birth, growth, and death. Because a forest is composed of many trees and because the number of factors affecting the life of each tree is large, realistic models of forest dynamics based on… Expand
