Abstract

Changes to an extant model of forest growth and transition that allow an evaluation of the consequences of beech bark disease are outlined. Required are a function to scale beech growth for the effects of beech bark disease, a function to predict beech mortality from beech bark disease, and a function that predicts root-sprout regeneration of beech.
