Backgrounds and scope of ecological modelling: between intellectual adventure and scientific routine. What are the general conditions under which ecological models can be applied? Historical background of ecological modelling and its importance for modern ecology. System analysis and context assessment. Steady state models of ecological systems: ecopath approach to masa-balanced system descriptions. Ordinary differential equations. Partial differential equations. Partial differential equations. Cellular automata in ecological modelling. Modelling ecological processes with fuzzy logic approaches. Grammar-based models and fractals. Individual-based models. Modelling species distributions…
This book shows how to construct and work with models of complex ecological processes, covering differential equations, matrix approaches, individual-based models and other relevant techniques. The authors include links to software tools and course materials
