Forest modelling for sustainable forest management

This course will focus on production and growth models used in forestry, what they are, and why we need them. We will look into the development of forest growth and yield models and what information and tools could be used for this. By analyzing strengths and weaknesses with different models, we will also explore the possibility of making long-term predictions of forest development and its challenges. Towards the end of the course, there will be a field week where we do data collection, model development, and application at a forest estate outside Gothenburg.

Information from the course leader

Hi, and welcome to the course Forest modelling for sustainable forest management. I'm Martin Goude, and I'm the course leader. The other teachers and I look forward to meeting you this November. During the course, we will cover parts of the vast topic of forest growth and yield modelling. We will discuss what a model is and what it is used for in forestry. How models are developed, what data is needed for development, and how that data is collected. The fourth week of the course will be a field-based week where we visit the Östad forest estate and combine filed based and lecture hall exercises.
