Project Description Contact, starting date
SIMREG A non-deterministic tree-level distance independent forest model that can simulate forest growth, yield and management on a regional scale while representing the wide diversity of composition, structure and management found in forest stands. It is composed of several sub-models to represent the main forest dynamics (growth, recruitment, removal, clearcut and reforestation) and to account for species composition, stand density, tree size and social status, forest ownership type and some sites characteristics. (Perin et al. 2021)

C-Stability A modeling framework to leverage the continuous representation of organic matter. This Carbon Substrate Targeted AccessiBILITY (C-STABILITY) model is driven by microbial activity and combines compartmental and continuous approaches. The substrate is split into biochemical classes, separating pools accessible to enzymes from inaccessible ones. Within each pool a continuous approach is implemented to describe the level of substrate polymerization. The model distinguishes between substrate accessibility to microbe uptake and substrate accessibility to enzymes. Over time the enzyme-accessible substrate is fragmented and depolymerized until it eventually becomes accessible to microbe uptake. Part of the taken up substrate is assimilated by decomposers and its biochemistry is modified by decomposer anabolism.

Phenofit Phenofit (Chuine and Beaubien 2001) is a process-based model that predicts species distribution at the continental scale. Phenofit estimates the probability of presence of an adult tree over several years by its fitness on a given site. Fitness is defined as the product of the probability of survival and the probability of reproductive success at a yearly time step. Probabilities of presence predicted over several sites or over a grid produce the potential distribution of the tree species.

QuEST QuEST predicts internal stem properties for various species of the Canadian boreal forest. Prediction models were developed as part of Alexis Achim’s research program at Laval University. Work was conducted by graduate students (Luciane Paes Torquato, Emmanuel Duchateau) and a postdoctoral fellow (David Auty). The integration of QuEST in the CAPSIS platform allows a visualisation of the simulations run using predictions of a tree growth model and a stem taper equation as input. Funding was provided by ForValueNet, the NSERC strategic network on forest management for value-added products.

Runaway This module investigates the evolution of correlation between traits under sexual selection in a theoretical population of organisms with a special attention on genome dynamics (number of loci, allelic diversity, mutation, drift, selection and linkage). It models a simple tradeoff between survival and energy devoted to reproduction, and a secondary tradeoff between gametic investment, phenotypic investment, and preference investment. These four traits are under genetic control, and energy devoted to reproduction limits the three other traits. The purpose is to explore the conditions for traits evolution and correlations and the evolution of their genomic structure. (UMR Ecobiop, Saint-Pée sur Nivelle)

Woudyfor Woudyfor (WOody Understorey DYnamic in FORestry) predicts the population dynamics of a woody understorey shrub species (common gorse) within a forest stand of maritime pine and given forestry practices. This individual-based and spatially explicit model relies upon the different steps of the life cycle of the shrub species (germination, recruitment, growth, seed production, ageing and death). These steps are impacted by forestry practices (cleaning, thining, ploughing) and by the decrease of available light with pine tree growth. (Bordeaux INP Georessources et Environnement / INRA ISPA)
