Shifting-gap mosaic is incorporated into the dynamic model of size-structured forests along geographic gradients. In the model named SAL (size–age–location), a forest at a geographic location has a patch-age structure, which approximates the shifting-gap mosaic, and a tree-size structure in each patch of the forest. Growth and recruitment occur in each patch and are regulated by patch-scale crowding in terms of upper basal area. Seed production depends on the basal area density of mother trees… CONTINUE READING
