Forest tree and stand growth and dynamics: Multiple effects and problems when analyzing data. Participating teachers from LUKE, Finland and NIBIO, NMBU Norway.

Course Description
PhD students in forest sciences are frequently analyzing individual tree-
and stand level growth. Response to treatments, natural dynamics, growth
trends in response to climate change are examples of topics to be
studied. Given that the studied system is far from a controlled
experiment and that experimental and sampling design only can reduce
some of the variation, multiple factors need to be accounted for when
analyzing the data. This requires intensive training and experience in
tree and stand growth analyses and extensive understanding of factors
affecting these processes. The course will bring PhD students in touch
with active researchers in forest growth and yield. Teachers will help
students to get a broader understanding of the field and how to solve
their specific problems.
