ORCHIDEE: Ticket #779: Different initialization between FM1 and FM2
https://forge.ipsl.jussieu.fr/orchidee/ticket/779
<p>
Currently, the model uses quite different initialization schemes for FM1 and FM2.
In FM1, the number of individuals decreases linearly till the number of individuals reaches n_threshold (0.4 now), which will be the beginning of a self-thinning. In FM2, the number of individuals follows a self-thinning line (means decreases exponentially) but that is multiplied by the maximum RDI target (which would be 0.4 for small trees). This results in a higher initial number of trees in FM2 than FM1. And thinning starts when the number of individuals reaches n_threshold.
These different schemes can confuse users, so it'd be better to be simplified or, at least, it needs documentation.
