DescriptionThe Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) is a forest dynamics modeling system with geographic variants covering forested areas of the contiguous United States. As a direct descendant of the Prognosis model of the 1970/80s, FVS has seen continuous development and use for over 40 years. The 2017 FVS e-Conference, the fifth in a series of quinquennial conferences, was a virtual event held February 28–March 2, 2017. It was dedicated to bringing together developers and users of FVS and had an overall goal of providing the medium to share our experiences, our lessons learned, our triumphs, and our failures. The 3 days included 40 presentations on FVS modernization, new variant development, linkages to other models, computational methods, regeneration modeling, model evaluation, integration with inventory systems, and project analyses. This conference proceedings contains 33 extended abstracts and papers.
