Individual-based models are of great use in the areas of aquatic ecology, terrestrial ecology, landscape or physiological ecology, terrestrial ecology, landscape or physiological ecology, and agriculture.

The individual-based approach is a more recent answer offered for these troubles of ecology.

Individual-based modeling of populations that undergo high mortality can be problematic Large numbers of model individuals must be followed to ensure adequate numbers of survivors at the end of the simulation, but following large numbers of individuals can require excessive computer memory and computational by:   This book provides the first in-depth treatment of individual-based modeling and its use to develop theoretical understanding of how ecological systems work, an approach the authors call "individual-based ecology."Grimm and Railsback start with a general primer on modeling: how to design models that are as simple as possible while still Reviews: 3.

Summary. Ecologists have used agent-based models for a long time, but refer to them as “individual-based models” (IBMs). Common characteristics of IBMs are discrete representation of unique individuals; local interactions; use of adaptive, fitness-seeking behaviour; explicit representation of how individuals and their environment affect each other; and representation of full life by: Get this from a library.

Individual-based modeling and ecology. [Volker Grimm; Steven F Railsback] -- "This is the first in-depth treatment of individual-based modeling and how it can be used to understand how ecological systems work, an approach the authors call "individual-based ecology." This book.

However, the greatest advantage of object-oriented models in ecology is that ecological and individual-based concepts are easier to translate directly into a programme; the programme itself is simpler to create and understand 12 The process of constructing an individual-based model may be similar to that of constructing any other modeCited by: These computational models allow scientists to explore the mechanisms through which population and ecosystem ecology arises from how individuals interact with each other and their environment.

This book provides the first in-depth treatment of individual-based modeling and its use to develop theoretical understanding of how ecological systems. "This seminal book truly deserves to be called the founding text for the growing field of individual-based modeling and the broader program of individual-based ecology.

Core procedures and standards for formulating, parameterizing, testing, and communicating such models have long been lacking. Even the basic definitions have been missing.
