Gradient Models as the Base for a Dynamic Information System
- 44 Downloads
As stated in Chapter 3, the gradient models of the vegetation and fuel were developed to provide: a description of the distributions of species populations and community characteristics; an understanding of the dynamic relationships among these species population, community characteristics, and the environment; and the basis for a terrestrial resource information system. The results of efforts to fulfill the first two purposes were described in Section II; this section describes the development of the resource and fire model that was built upon this gradient framework.
