Modelling effects of climate on site productivity of white pine plantations (CCRR-49)

Summary

Site productivity depends on environmental factors such as biotic, edaphic, and climatic conditions and in forestry is represented by site index (SI) or height at a given base age. Traditional SI equations are built on the assumption that climate remains constant. As climate is not constant and its variability is predicted to increase, climate variables were incorporated into stand height/site index equations developed for white pine (Pinus strobus) plantations.
