If you are interested in learning how to run the LANDIS-II forest simulation model (, sign up for LANDIS-II training at Harvard Forest on April 8th -10th, 2014.  LANDIS-II simulates forest succession,  fire, wind, harvesting, insects, climate change, and seed dispersal across large (typically 10,000 - 20,000,000 ha) landscapes.  LANDIS-II tracks the spatial distribution of discrete tree and shrub species and has flexible spatial and temporal resolutions.

Registration is available here at this website  The 2.5 day training costs $325.  If you're only interested in the advanced training for the Century Extension, the cost is only $75. The workshop will cover parameterization, simulating landscapes, and analyzing outputs.  Each participant will receive a copy of the new LANDIS-II training manual.  The training sessions will be taught by Drs. Melissa Lucash, Matthew Duveneck, and Jonathan Thompson. Housing is available at Harvard Forest.

Register early as training is limited to 15 participants!
