At present most books on ecological modelling rely on very complex mathematics, and so students and researchers shy away from investigating the potential uses of ecological models and their methods of construction.
This new book aims to open up this introduction to ecological modelling book area to a much wider : Paperback. "Jorgensen, who is pioneer in ecological modeling and a prolific author of models, has done a remarkable job of providing a solid introduction suitable at the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate levels." "The volume's greatest strength is in the author's own specialty, biochemical modeling."Cited by: Introduction to Ecological Modelling by Mike Gillman () Paperback – January 1, by Mike Gillman; Rosemary Hails (Author)Author: Mike Gillman; Rosemary Hails.
It is a very good introduction to complex introduction to ecological modelling book modelling. As a master's student, this book has helped me better understand the main differences between all major techniques of modelling (linear regressions, mechanistic models, cellular automaton, agent-based models, etc.).Reviews: 1.
Ecological modelling requires both an introduction to the basic theory and practical computer exercises in the development of models.
To facilitate the exercises, the book presents several illustrations, where an ecological modelling problem or task is presented and the solution is. Information Eaux this book will be an invaluable source of information for a variety of engineers and ecologists, who have a mathematical background and may wish to gain an introduction to the rapidly growing field of ecological and environmental modelling.
This book will also be very adequate for courses on this : Paperback. Ecological Modelling: an Introduction is a textbook tailored for the last year of a bachelor study or the first year of a master study. Ecological Modelling is a very powerful tool in environmental management and ecological research and a course in ecological modelling ought therefore to be compulsory for all studies focusing on environmental management, environmental sciences and ecology.

Illustrated throughout with practical examples, the book discusses ecological modeling as both an art and a science, balancing the qualitative (artistic) side, with its foundations in common sense and modeling practice, against the quantitative (scientific) aspects of the modeling.
