Size Dependent Logistic Mortality
Size Dependent Logistic Mortality applies a mortality function that is a logistic function of tree size. Trees killed by this behavior will have a mortality reason code of "natural".
Parameters for this behavior
How it works
For each tree to which this behavior is applied, the following function is evaluated:
The probability is compared to a random number to determine whether the individual tree will die.
How to apply it
This behavior may be applied to seedlings, saplings, and adults of any species.
