Mathematic models of forest dynamics are inspected and evaluated. are hardly acceptable in a book in the Springer-Verlag ecology series. However, "A theory of forest dynamics" represents a worthwhile look at the use of simulation models in studies of forest succession, and is one of the first to attempt to relate successional theory to modelling.

To understand these interactions, long-term monitoring of spontaneous forest development is necessary. A complete monitoring system has been developed including a computer package for analysis of long-term observation of forest dynamics.

The system's name, "SILVI-STAR", is an acronym of SILVIgenesis and Single-tree Three-dimensional Architecture. Forest dynamics are then simulated based on the light made available from gaps in the canopy caused by mortality. Mortality is modeled using a probability of death; the greater the competitive forces on the tree the higher the probability of death.

However, those purchasing this book are likely to be the libraries of universities and research institutes apart from a few forest scientists specifically interested in the stand dynamics of temperate Europe forest systems.” (W.

Mason, International Forestry Review, September, )Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. The dynamics of forests concerns how the collection of trees changes in response to events that are either unplanned (e.g., fires or windstorms) or planned (e.g., harvest activities).

As forest and natural resource managers, we have the ability to manipulate forest composition and structure through silvicultural activities. Principles of Ecological Forestry.
