Projecting Forest Dynamics Across Europe: Potentials and Pitfalls of Empirical Mortality Algorithms

Thrippleton, Timothy ; Hülsmann, Lisa ; Cailleret, Maxime ; Bugmann, Harald



Abstract

Mortality is a key process of forest ecosystem dynamics and functioning strongly altering biomass stocks and carbon residence times. Dynamic vegetation models (DVMs) used to predict forest dynamics are typically based on simple, largely data-free ('theoretical') mortality algorithms (MAs). To improve DVM projections, the use of empirically based MAs has been suggested, but little is known about ...
