3.0 Representing Ecological Models with Discrete Event Simulation


In this section we are assuming you understand the basic idea behind Discrete Event Simulation and biological modeling.

Goals for this Section

We will cover the structure and use of the three major classes used in the ecological framework. These classes are the simulation scheduler, the physical environment, and the biological inhabitants of the environment. When you finish this section you should understand how to use field data to make a uesful simulation.
