DescriptionShows how it is possible to obtain governing equation parameter estimates on the basis of observed system states. The approach used represents a constructive alternative to regression techniques for models expressed as differential equations. This approach allows scientists to more completely quantify knowledge of forest development processes, to express theories in terms of one or more governing differential equations, and to determine unknown numerical constants in the governing equations.
