Tundra shrubification and tree-line advance amplify arctic climate warming: results from an individual-based dynamic vegetation model

One major challenge to the improvement of regional climate scenarios for the northern high latitudes is to understand land surface feedbacks associated with vegetation shifts and ecosystem biogeochemical cycling. We employed a customized, Arctic …

Implementing storm damage in a dynamic vegetation model for regional applications in Sweden

Wind is the dominant agent of damage in forests in Western Europe. Traditional wind-damage models calculate a probability for damage or a critical wind speed at which damage occurs. However, in a dynamic vegetation model actual damage to stands and …
