Abstract

PrognosisBC is a growth and yield model developed to predict the impacts of partial cutting on future stand structures in multi-species and/or multi-age stands. Applications of the existing version of this model are limited by the lack of a natural regeneration component. The research and extension activities outlined in this proposal are aimed at implementing a natural regeneration model within the context of PrognosisBC . This work will be based on the regeneration imputation techniques developed at the Department of Forest Resources Management, UBC, for a number of important biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification subzone variants in southeastern and central British Columbia. The new model will provide the tool needed to project the dynamics of complex stands under partial harvesting regimes.
