The project aimed at creating a model that can simulate the effect of environmental factors on trees and grasses in an African savanna landscape. It enables simulating the growth of woody and herbaceous vegetation in an African savanna landscape, where the user can define the environmental conditions. Input to the model includes:
- Monthly precipitation
- Fire regime
- Grazing pressure
- Soil type
- Attributes of the woody species, such as maximum crown size and sensitivity to light conditions, drought, and fire.
