Prévoir la croissance et la production du Pin sylvestre : le module Sylvestris sous Capsis 4

Abstract : Scots pine covers a large surface area in France (1.2 million hectares, according to forest inventory figures for 1999) and ranks second among softwoods in terms of standing volume. Adaptation of this species to poor, acidic, hydromorphic soils and the quality of its timber are considerable assets. Nonetheless, the Scots pine was still one of the few major species for which no forest management-oriented growth model was available in France. The purpose of this article is to present a model that is suited to even Scots pine stands in the Centre and Alsace regions. We review the various relationships in the model and its use in the CAPSIS simulator. We pay special attention to its range of validity and evaluation. Prospects for improving and enriching the model are also discussed.
