SORTIE-NDSoftware for spatially-explicit simulation of forest dynamics
BC mortality is a growth-based mortality behavior.
Trees killed by this behavior will have a mortality reason code of "natural".
Parameters for this behavior
How it works
The BC mortality model evaluates the following function to determine the probability of a tree's mortality:
BC mortality is described in Kobe and Coates 1997.
How to apply it
This behavior can be applied to seedlings, saplings, and adults of any species. Any tree species/type combination to which it is applied must also have a growth behavior applied.
