Forest Growth Modelling

AFFORSIM is a simulator of forest growth and afforestation. It is a Multi Agent simulator (sometimes called Individual Based and Spatially excplicit Model : IBM). At the starting time of the simulation,  some individuals of Pines (or various ages and height) are shared over the stand.

Next, individual growths are driven by differential equations which parameters are obtained from geometrical computations (calculus of an individual competition indice). Seed production, seed dispersal and death (due to both competition and age) are also modelled.

AFFORSIM was developped in colaboration with Dr. D. Hill (ISIMA), Dr. B. Prévosto (CEMAGREF) and Dr. A. Robert (Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis).
