Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 34)


The main theme of this book involves a discussion of a specific field of the economic-ecological interaction — a rational exploitation of biological communities (populations). Many important practical issues such as environmental protection, rational consumption of biotic resources, increasing agriculture productivity, fishing and cattle-breeding, are involved in the exploitation of ecological populations. Mathematical modeling is used for preventing negative ecological consequences and obtaining a maximal economic profit of the exploitation under minimal expenditures with certain natural and economic restrictions fulfilled.
