Work involves the development of a biophysical model that can be used to adjust site index estimates for stands within the Mackenzie TSA. This project is proposed to run through two phases. Phase 1 will be completed in fiscal 2004 and involves the development of a biophysical model to predict site series based on environmental attributes of forest stands in the Mackenzie TSA and the construction of a sampling plan that will be used to calibrate initial site index estimates generated by the model. Phase 2, to be completed in fiscal 2005, involves the implementation of the sampling plan, calibration of the model, and final reporting. Refer to accompanying work plan for a detailed description of the project.
