Abstract

The FERTFOR3 data processing system is designed to analyse the evolution in time of a forest stand: variation occurring in the distribution of trees by diameter classes as well as variations of basal area (both absolute and corrected) can be followed f rom year to year. Due to its very flexible configuration, this system tends ltself well to numerous applications. The creation of specific subroutines, which can be integrated to the main program, permits the analysis of results to be oriented in a precise direction. Furthermore, the indexed sequential access to data files improves considerably the performance of this type of treatment. FERTFOR3 is presented here from a practical point of view.
