Across Trophic Level System Simulation (ATLSS) - Landscape/Vegetation

Summary

The basic goal is to develop predictive vegetation succession models for targeted habitats, describing how they are affected by changes in hydrology and available nutrients. Disturbance regimes are the third major landscape driver coupled to succession, so fire scenarios will also be built into the models.
