Individual-Based Models and Approaches In Ecology

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Until fairly recently, populations were handled as homogenized averages, which made modeling feasible but which ignored the essential fact that in any population there is a great variety of individuals of different ages, sizes, and degrees of fitness. Recently, because of the increased availability of affordable computer power, approaches have been developed which are able to recognize individual differences. Individual-based models are of great use in the areas of aquatic ecology, terrestrial ecology, landscape or physiological ecology, terrestrial ecology, landscape or physiological ecology, and agriculture.This book discusses which biological problems individual-based models can solve, as well as the models' inherent limitations. It explores likely future directions of theoretical development in these models, as well as currently feasible management applications and the best mathematical approaches and computer languages to use. The book also details specific applications to theory and management.

Condition: As an ex-library book the inside of the front cover has a library sticker and bar code, the spine a catalogue number, and the top and bottom of the text block - as well as the reverse of the title page - library stamps. The volume is otherwise internally clean. Some bumping to corners and discolouration of spine.
