The Phygrow Information Page
Phygrow is a hydrologic based plant growth
simulation model. Phygrow
is intended to produce an available
forage production for a site.
Phygrow uses soil characteristics,
plant community characteristics, and
weather data for a particular
location to predict the forage production.
The PHYGROW system is intended to be a general ecosystem model
similar in function to the work done by
The Dynamic, Spatial, Ecological Modeling Team
Sage Grouse Model
developed for the US Army's Yakima Training Center. Many of the growth
parameters are from A
We will provide hooks
that allow for the sage grouse, and the human activities type models, with a
more extensive and more flexible vegetation and physical process submodel.
Internally we will be primaraly concerned with ruminant grazing practices with
respect to long term viability of the vegetation.
