LANDIS, an imprecise acronym that stands for Landscape Disturbance and Succession Model, is co-owned by Hong He and creator David Mladenoff (University of Wisconsin). The model has different components that foster exploration by interest (for example, fire, wind, harvest, insects and disease, fire management, or forest succession), and is free of charge to the public.
