Q. What is VDDT?
The Vegetation Dynamics Development Tool (VDDT; Beukema and others 2003) is a public-domain, state-and-transition model that provides a framework for quantifying the rate and effects of succession and disturbance on a landscape. Users partition the landscape into states (for example, combinations of cover and structure) and define the transitions (for example, disturbances and succession) that cause movement between classes.
