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


The mathematical models of the communities of animals and plants have been developed in detail including their analytic theory as well as simulation computer methods for such models. Present-day models take into account aftereffect and joint influence of different exogenous and endogenous (external and internal) factors. They use various mathematical means including complex ones: partial differential equations, integral and difference equations, optimization methods, etc. Therefore, one of main research problems is choosing a model and justifying the choice with regard for modelling goals and simulation complexity.
