Application of Nature Based Algorithm in Natural Resource Management

Contains case studies showing the application of nature-based algorithms in management of natural resources
Highlights the impact of climate change, both short and long term, on management of watersheds in generating both energy and proceeds so that readers know the process to prevent and profit from any forthcoming natural disasters
These studies can be used as an example for finding solutions of the other maximization or minimization problems which are common in natural resource management.

About this book

Application of Nature Based Algorithm in Natural Resource Management highlights the application of nature-based algorithms in natural resource management. Application of Nature Based Algorithm in Natural Resource Management includes the methodologies to apply what natural flora or fauna do to optimize their survival. The same technique was used to optimize renewable energy generation from water resources, maximization of profit from crop harvesting, forest resource management and decision-making studies. These studies can be used as an example for finding solutions of the other maximization or minimization problems which are common in natural resource management.
