A data sets of species parameter definition and values, the latter resulting from existing databases, fit to empirical data or expert-based guesses.

Format

  • Data frame SpParamsDefinition has parameters in rows and columns 'ParameterName', 'ParameterGroup', 'Definition', 'Type' and 'Units'.

  • Data frames SpParamsMED (for Catalonia), SpParamsES (for Spain), SpParamsFR (for France) and SpParamsUS (for US) have species or genus as rows and column names equal to parameter names in SpParamsDefinition.

Details

SpParamsMED was the official species parameter for package versions up to v.4.0.0, but will not be maintained in the future.

SpParamsES, SpParamsFR and SpParamsUS are species parameter data frames designed to be used with National Forest Inventories of Spain, France and USA, respectively.

Details of the procedures used to obtain the species parameter tables can be found in an article at https://emf-creaf.github.io/medfate/.
