How to create all possible forests in the world? Introducing a random forest generator: The Forest Factory 2.0

Forests, as one of the most important carbon reservoirs on earth, will be stressed by environmental changes. The dynamics of forests in terms of biodiversity and structure, and consequently their ecosystem services in general, will change. We therefore present a recent model development, called "Forest Factory 2.0", which generates different forest stands around the world. This approach allows the tool to generate forests using the model mechanics of the FORMIND gap model, but for different biomes on Earth. Using Forest Factory 2.0, we conducted a structural sensitivity analysis to compare the relationships between diversity and productivity of forests in different biomes on Earth to uncover causal relationships and demonstrate the potential of this approach for theoretical ecology.
