Mixed-species and/or uneven-aged stands (complex stands) are common in southeast and central British Columbia. Management using some form of partial cutting generally increases the structural complexity of such stands, complicating predictions of future development. Prognosis BC is a growth and yield model adapted from the original Prognosis model that was developed for the northern Rocky Mountian region of the United States to assist in predicting the dynamics of complex stands. The model can be used to stimulate almost any form of harvesting, from clearcutting to partial cutting, and can also be linked to other models to stimulate the impacts of various disease and insect vectors.
