Modelling forest growth using 3-PG Testing 3-PG in uneven-aged forests, comparing predictions with an empirical model and developing a 3-PG R package. Monitoring natural forest reserves in Switzerland We offer scientific support for monitoring natural forest reserves through the "Research and effectiveness controlling in Swiss forest reserves" partnership project of the WSL, ETH and FOEN.
