About this book

Presents a new method for the mathematical modelling of dynamics of complex environmental systems and ecological processes called the `response function method'. Using time series observations and prior knowledge or information, this approach allows the researcher to take all essential features of ecosystem processes, such as complexity, multi-dimensioness, uncertainty and irreducability, into account.


Fundamentals of the theory of response function method; ONTOMOD - the model of ontogenesis in higher plants using soybean as an example; POLMOD.RAD - the model of 90 Sr dynamics in the elementary ecosystems; POLMOD.PEST - the model of pesticides dynamics in the elementary ecosystems; HUMOD - the model of humus formation in soils of natural and agricultural systems; development of environmental indices using the method of response function.
