Summary MC1 is a widely used dynamic global vegetation model (DGVM) that has been used to simulate potential vegetation shifts in National Parks (NPs) such as Wind Cave NP and Yosemite NP, across various states such as California and Alaska, over the entire continent of North America, and even over the entire globe, under a variety of climate change scenarios. Global Vegetation Dynamics: Concepts and Applications in the MC1 model describes the creation in the mid-1990s, architecture, uses, and limitations of the MC1 DGVM that is being used by an increasing number of research groups around the world.
