Description

If iFM = 1, recruitment should probably be used. If looking for a global rule, recruitment may be a function of the management rather than the PFT as it is know.

(1) When implementing this change the effect of recruitment on LAI should be checked especially in the boreal zone where recruitments is less dense than in the other biomes.
(2) The impact of recruitment on stand age should also be checked. In the absence of natural disturbances, recruitment could make the stand life forever unless the maximum stand age is still in use.
