The Vegetation Dynamics Development Tool (VDDT) is a user-friendly, Windows-based computer tool which provides a state and transition landscape modelling framework for examining the role of various disturbance agents and management actions in vegetation change. It allows users to create and test descriptions of vegetation dynamics, simulating them at the landscape level.
