Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book … gives a superb thumbnail history of ecological modeling. It should be read by all the audiences and, indeed, by anyone interested in ecological modeling. It should be required reading in all graduate and undergraduate modeling courses. … All the chapters … provide excellent bibliographies. The sum of all 16 bibliographies alone is probably well worth the price of the book, especially for modelers and students of modeling." (Karl Albert Beres, Natural Areas Journal, Vol. 25 (3), 2005)

"This well-edited volume presents a collection of 16 papers resulting from a symposium held at Oak Ridge, Tennessee in October 2000. … The main focus is on ecological modelling for the public sector in the USA, especially on the problems of devising and using models for environmental regulation and for the management of public lands. … it can be recommended to specialists as a source book." (Bulletin of the British Ecological Society, Vol. 34 (4), 2003)
