Abstract

A forest ecosystem model, FOREST-BGC (Biogeochemical cycles), was used to simulate the 5-yr growth increments of 177 interior Douglas-fir Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca trees growing in uneven-aged stands. Simulated carbon balances were dynamic, with the total maintenance respiration increasing with an increase in tree size and (or) competitive stress. -from Authors
