The Tool for Exploratory Landscape Scenario Analyses (TELSA) is a spatially explicit model of vegetation succession, natural disturbances, and forest management activities. TELSA is a strategic planning tool designed to support adaptive management by projecting the consequences of alternative scenarios at the scale of landscape units (i.e. 10 000–200 000 ha) over time frames of decades to centuries. Scenario combine user-specified assumptions about natural disturbances and management activities… CONTINUE READING
