Several authors have suggested using silviculture to create a dynamic target distribution of forest structures across the landscape in managing for both biodiversity and production of outputs (Harris 1984, Oliver 1992, Swanson and Franklin 1992). If forest structure (the dynamic spatial distribution and composition of tree vegetation) is known, it can be used for predicting changes in wildlife habitat, biodiversity, and output production. This paper describes a method for using tree growth and yield simulator output to classify temporal changes in forest structure associated with applying silvicultural prescriptions. West. J. Appl. For. 9(3):91-94.
