Wykoff, William R. Supplement to the user's guide for the Stand Prognosis Model-version 5.0. General Technical Report INT-208. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station; 1986. 36 p.

Differences between Prognosis Model versions 4.0 and 5.0 are described. Additions to version 5.0 include an event monitor that schedules activities contingent on stand characteristics, a regeneration establishment model that predicts the structure of the regeneration stand following treatment, and a COVER model that predicts shrub development and total canopy cover. Program performance has been enhanced by modifications to several of the submodels that predict tree increments.

Keywords: growth and yield, forest management, planning, growth projection, stand models, tree increments, tree mortality
