The LANDIS-II Landscape Change Model
LANDIS-II simulates landscape change due to succession, disturbance (including fire, wind, harvesting, insects), land use change, and climate change across large (typically 10,000 - 20,000,000 ha) landscapes. Learn more about our research and see our publications list.
Some features of LANDIS-II:
The original LANDIS (LANdscape DIsturbance and Succession) model was developed by Drs. David Mladenoff, Hong He, and others. LANDIS-II was developed at the Forest Landscape Ecology Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the USFS Northern Research Station, the Dynamic Ecosystems and Landscapes Lab at Portland State University, and Harvard Forest.
