Due to an update in the BehavePlus software, the inputs and outputs for the BehavePlus exercise found on page 3 of 13 through page 5 of 13 of the pre-course work document and the subsequent solution found in the pre-course work answer key on page 3 of 18 through page 8 of 18 are not correct. This will affect information found in the instructor guide on page 1.7 – 1.12 and PowerPoint slides 01-14-RX301-PPT thru 01-24-RX301-PPT.
To ensure the students and instructors come to the same solution it is suggested that instructors complete the exercise using the most recent release of BehavePlus prior to instructing unit 1. In lieu of using the slides 14 – 24 of the current PowerPoint presentation it is suggested the instructor display the Behave program and demonstrate the solution to the students in the actual software.
Bark thickness has been added to the input section of the BehaverPlus exercise. BehavePlus 5.0.5 calculates morality based on dbh. 16" dbh equates to 1" bark thickness in BehavePlus 5.0.5.
