Sustainable dynamics of size-structured forest under climate change
This work investigates the impact of global climate change on the sustainable growth of forest, namely, on its aggregated characteristics such as the number of trees, the basal area, and the amount of carbon sequestrated in the stand. The forest dynamics is described by a nonlinear size-structured population model. The existence of a steady state regime is proven and explicit formulas for the aggregated characteristics are obtained. A numeric simulation on realistic data illustrates and extends the analytic results obtained. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
