DescriptionThe Stand-Damage Model (a component of the Gypsy Moth Life System Model) simulates the growth of a mixed hardwood forest and incorporates the effects of defoliation by gypsy moth or tree harvesting as prescribed by the user. It can be used to assess the damage from expected defoliation, view the differences between various degrees of defoliation, and describe the effects of defoliation on a stand under user-defined silvicultural prescriptions and defoliation scenarios. This user's guide provides the information necessary to install and use the model software on DOS microcomputers. The reference section provides a more experienced user with a structure map of the system.
