The overall objective of this project was to calibrate the main component models of PrognosisBC to allow its use in the SBS and SBPS BEC zones in the central interior of the province. Models and data presented in the enclosed report were incorporated into the PrognosisBC growth and yield simulator version 3.0, and will be subsequently tested and validated within the context of the simulator. Official release of the new version of the model will follow model testing. A two-day training workshop was offered in Kamloops, BC in February 2005 to introduce users to version 3.0 of the PrognosisBC software. This report and associated data will be made available through the Ministry of Forests growth and yield website as well as the PrognosisBC web site at the University of British Columbia.
