FOR4096Forest Landscape Design and Management 5 ch (3C 3L)

Integrates value-flow planning with landscape planning by: 1) introducing students to the concepts and techniques used in dealing with the spatial dimensions in forest management planning; 2) introducing students to the difficulties involved with management for a complex set of demands, where resources demanded have production functions that include complex spatial and temporal relationships of inputs, many of which are unknown; and 3) exposing students to techniques available to forecast landscape patterns resulting from flow driven management planning, and to design landscape patterns based on analysis of natural dynamics. 

Prerequisite: FOR 3006, or permission of instructor.
