Project

Understanding real forests with imaginary landscapes : using modelling to explore the effect of several methods of wood harvesting at different scales in the forests of Québec
The goal of this project is to explore the effects of the even-aged and uneven-aged methods of forest management on the provisioning of ecosystemic services by the forests, and on the resilience of this provisioning in face of global changes. To this end, we will use a spatial explicit modelling framework to simulate the effects of those methods of forest management at the landscape scale, and onto long periods of time. We will rely onto data coming from forests situated in Québec, in the Mauricie region.
