Radial tree-growth modelling with fuzzy regression

  title={Radial tree-growth modelling with fuzzy regression},
  author={J. J. Boreux and C. Gadbin-Henry and J. Guiot and Laurent Tessier},
A so-called fuzzy linear regression is used in dendroecology to model empirically tree growth as a function of a bioclimatic index representing the water stress, i.e., the ratio of actual evapotranspiration to potential evapotranspiration. The response function predicts tree growth as (fuzzy) intervals, narrow in the domain where the bioclimatic index is most limiting and becoming progressively larger elsewhere. The method is tested with a population of Pinus pineaL. from the Provence region in… CONTINUE READING
