About this book

An overview of the status and role of modeling in ecosystem science, including perspectives on the long running debate over the appropriate level of complexity in models and on the critical issue of evaluating ecosystem models, including methods of addressing uncertainty. There are several case studies on the role of models in environmental policy and management. A section on the future of modeling in ecosystem science focuses on increasing the use of modeling in undergraduate education and the modelling skills of professionals within the field.

In the book, a group of excellent ecologists share with you their experience of working with ecological models, their insights into various modeling issues, and their visions of future directions... Experienced modelers or experimentalists with strong interests in modeling can learn a great deal from this book. -- Yiqi Luo Ecology
