FBRI Graduate Fellow: Halli Hemingway
Halli compared traditional height-age modeled growth rates to observed growth rates in Northern Idaho. The modeled growth rates consistently underpredicted height growth.
Halli explored the accuracy of productivity predictions using 10-meter site index and a nonparametric approach. One method accurately predicted 100% of test sites and was chosen to create productivity maps of the region.
The new method of defining forest productivity is helpful to forest managers, ecologists, forest biometricians, and climate change experts by making their projections more accurate. More …
This project was done in collaboration with Mark Kimsey, Forestry professor at the University of Idaho.
