Description of Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling 4th Edition (PDF)

Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling 4th Edition bySven Erik Jorgensen & Brian D. Fath is a great book for Ecology Modelling studies, available in PDF download. This is Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling 4th edition of Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling, and we have given it a longer title: Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling: Application in Environmental Management and Research. This was done to emphasize that models, applied in environmental management and ecological research, are particularly considered in the model illustrations included in this book. Giuseppe Bendoricchio, the co-author of the third edition published in 2001, passed away in 2005. We would, therefore, like to dedicate this book to his memory and his considerable contributions in the 1980s and 1990s to the development of ecological modelling.

This Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling 4th edition uses the four model types previously listed as the foundation and expands the latest model developments in spatial models, structurally dynamic models, and individual-based models. As these seven types of models are very different and require different considerations in the model development phase, we found it important for an up-to-date textbook to devote a chapter to the development of each of the seven model types. Throughout the text, the examples given from the literature emphasize the application of models for environmental management and research.

This Fundamentals of Ecological Modelling 4th edition is maintained as a textbook with many concrete model illustrations and exercises included in each chapter. The previous editions have been widely used as textbooks for past courses in ecological modelling, and it is the hope of the authors that this edition will be an excellent basis for today’s ecological modelling courses.
