Modelling of large scale multi-agents disturbances in mountain spruce forests to assess their different scenarios

Name: Modelling of large scale multi-agents disturbances in mountain spruce forests to assess their different scenarios
Researchers: Brůna Josef (member of research team)
Wild Jan (head – principal researcher)
Project Type: C - other (Research and development projects of ministries, contracts and agreements on targeted research and cooperation, etc.)
Realization from: 2015
Realization to: 2017
Summary: Proposed project has two basic aims, which in their synergy contribute to development of high-quality and more robust models of forest dynamics. First aim is a detail monitoring of regeneration dynamics in mountain spruce forest affected by dieback of canopy trees (caused by large-scale disturbances) on existing permanent plots of project investigators. Observed growth and demographic parameters will be assessed in respect to microsites condition and structure and history of forest stands. Second aim is modelling of landscape forest dynamics using LANDIS II model, which is further developed and parameterized on departments of proposers. The project will contribute to development of better models by providing sound primary data and by understanding of ecological processes connected with forest regeneration. Proposed project is directly connected to ongoing COST Action: FP1304 PROFOUND, which defined the more robust forest projection as one of its key topics.
