SpeciesFile

The speciesFile is a parameter file for modules relying on the Fire library. It contains all the information to parametrize a species. It can be modified by the user.

The location of the default file is capsis4/data/fireparadox/specieFile for FuelManager and capsis4/data/standfire/specieFile for STANDFIRE

Several record should be set to define a new species. Among them:

Species information record:

  • SLA: specific leaf area (m2kg-1), used to compute Leaf Area Index (LAI)
  • CrownGeometry: List of (relative height in crown (% of (H-CBH)), relative width in crown (% of CD)). Eg: {(0,100);(100,100)} is a cylindric crown.
