iLand version 1.0 for WindowsThis is the iLand version 1.0 (released 2016-11-16), i.e. the model version that is "feature complete" in the sense that it includes all major processes that were originally planned. Compared to the last major public release, this version includes the agent based forest mangement engine and the bark beetle disturbance module. Check out more details on this release on the iLand blog here and here. The download package includes:
