Ecological Model Types brings understanding on how to quantitatively analyze complex and dynamic ecosystems with the tools available today. Ecosystem studies are widely using the notions of order, complexity, randomness and organization. They are used interchangeably in the literature, which causes much confusion. Good models are syntheses of our knowledge about ecosystems and their environmental problems, in contrast to a statistical analysis, which only will reveal the relationships between the data. This book brings together experts on Ecological Models to create the definitive work on understanding of our complex Earth.
