论文摘要:
Artificial neural network models are a popular estimation tool for fitting nonlinear relationships because they require no assumptions about the form of the fitting function, non-Gaussian distributions, multicollinearity, outliers and noise in the data. The problems of backpropagation models using artificial neural networks include determination of the structure of the network and overlearning courses. According to data from 1981 to 2008 from 15 permanent sample plots on Dagangshan Mountain in Jiangxi Province, a back-propagation artificial neural network model (BPANN) and a support vector machine model (SVM) for basal area of Chinese fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata) plantations were constructed using four kinds of prediction factors, including stand age, site index, surviving stem numbers and quadratic mean diameters. Artificial
intelligence methods, especially SVM, could be effective in describing stand basal area growth of Chinese fir under different growth conditions with higher simulation precision than traditional regression models. SVM and the Chapman–Richards nonlinear mixed-effects model had less systematic bias than the BPANN.
