**Comparing ORGANON & SPS**Using the Bakuzis Matrix Growth Model Users Group December 15, 2005 Dave Hamlin**The Bakuzis Matrix**• Egolfs Bakuzis • U. Minnesota • Synecological Coordinates • Named by Rolfe Leary • North Central Station, St. Paul. (retired)**The Bakuzis Matrix**• A framework for examining models • In the context of biological ‘laws’ • Useful for side-by-side comparisons • Leary, R.A. 1997. Testing models of unthinned red pine plantations using a modified Bakuzis matrix of stand properties. Ecological Modelling 98 (1997) 35-46**Full Matrix**Plots Stand Parameters against Time and Each Other by Site Quality**Full Matrix**Italics identify relationships involving increment and thinning**Simplified Matrix**Leary’s Triangular Form Italics indicate cells from which relationships can be derived.**Interpreting Cells**• Sukachev Effect • ‘stands on good sites self-thin faster than stands on poor sites.’ • Reineke’s Rule • sd = a(dbh)b • b is approximately -1.6 • b is independent of site quality • a reflects stockability of the site**Interpreting Cells**• Percent Spacing • Stands self-thin when their mean inter-tree distance approaches 10% to 20% of height. • Eichorn’s Rule • Relationship between volume and height is independent of site.**Models**• SPS 4.1H • January 1999 • ORGANON • SMC Beta, April 2005.**Stand Projected**• 100% DF • 400 TPA at age 15 • SI 65, 105, 145 (merchandised with the same functions)**Observations**• AGE relationships make sense • Sukachev as expected • Reineke as expected • Eichorn looks good (except SI 65)**Observations**• AGE relationships make sense • Sukachev as expected • Reineke shows a bit of SI effect • Eichorn looks good**Observations**• Identical HT-Age • Mortality Very Different • QDBH-TOPHT differ • CVTS-Age Similar • Has value implications**Compare TPA**• Observations • ORGANON -Little SI effect in Reineke • SPS 4.1 – Some SI Effect**Compare QDBH & TopHT**• Observations • ORGANON taller for a given QDBH. • Expected, given denser stands.**Thoughts**• Mortality model drives much of the difference between SPS and ORGANON • Both models conform reasonably well to ‘law like’ expectations. • It is interesting that CVTS is as similar as it is, given differences in TPA. • What are the value implications?
