So far, process-based models use largely the bottom-up approach. They start by describing physiological processes in a single plant element and then integrate the constituent processes to predict growth and dimensions of the tree and stand. Although bottom-up process models are praised for their contribution to knowledge of growth processes, their predictions are poor. The complementary top-down approach begins where the bottom-up model ends: with measurable variables such as height or diameter… CONTINUE READING
