Notes

Abstract: In this thesis, the model of clear FACET forest dynamics plot scale for central Imataca Forest Reserve was parameterized. From this model MOSAIC transition model was parameterized using a method for scaling maintaining consistency between the level of plot and landscape level. The parameterization of individual-based model FACET was performed by calculating allometric height-diameter and the estimation of the growth rate of 39 species. The model was parameterized MOSAIC transition from the execution of FACET to obtain the percentage of occupation of thirteen (13) different types of coverage, defined from four functional roles and the height reached in the trees of the species, for each one of 360 positions or types of land defined based on elevation, soil, slope, and annual rainfall. For this, a Geo-Information System was used. The outputs of occupation of the states of FACET at plot level compared with the outputs of MOSAIC in each of the 360 types of terrain, showing similar behavior indicating that the spatial scaling in the process of simulation is consistent. Subsequently, MOSAIC was simulated across the landscape using market position values of the parameters calculated in the terrain that best approximates their environmental factors. MOSAIC outputs were visualized with Geo Information System. The results of the simulation allowed MOSAIC describe the effect of the characteristic aspects of the landscape on forest dynamics.
