2.0 Ecological Models


We assume the reader already understands the standard methods for ecological modeling, i.e. analytic models and stochastic models.

Goals for this Section

This section is designed to introduce Individual Based Modeling and to contrast it with traditional ecological models.


2.1 Traditional Models

2.1.1 Analytic Equation

2.1.2 Stochastic Simulation

2.2 Individual Based Models

2.3 Tradeoffs
