About this book

Individual-based models are of great use in the areas of aquatic, terrestrial, landscape and physiological ecology, and agriculture - their ability to recognise individual differences does not reduce populations to homogenized averages. This book discusses the biological problems which individual-based models can solve, as well as the models' inherent limitations. It explores likely future directions of theoretical development, as well as currently feasible management applications and the best mathematical approaches and computer languages to use.
