A static climate-sensitive model for site requirements of tree species

Forstarchiv 69(3): 92-103

A static climate-sensitive model for site requirements of tree species

A site suitability static model for tree species was developed. Similar to the life-form concept of Holdridge (L. R. Holdridge (1947) Determination of world plant formations from simple climatic data. Science, 105: 267-268), a multi-dimensional model space was defined for central European tree species, based on site requirements.
