With descriptions of hundreds of the most important environmental and ecological models, this handbook is a unique and practical reference source. The Handbook of Environmental and Ecological Modeling is ideal for those working in environmental modeling, including regulators and managers who wish to understand the models used to make assessments. Overviews of more than 360 models are easily accessed in this handbook, allowing readers to quickly locate information they need about models available in a given ecosystem.The material in the Handbook of Environmental and Ecological Modeling is logically arranged according to ecosystem. Each of the sixteen chapters of the handbook covers a particular ecosystem, and includes not only the descriptions of the models, but also an overview of the state-of-the-art in modeling for that particular ecosystem. A summary of the spectrum of available models is also provided in each chapter. The extensive table of contents and the easy-to-use index put materials immediately at your fingertips.

"The authors have met their primary objective of providing an overview of the spectrum of models that is available for a wide variety of ecosystems and ecological topics. The introductory sections of the chapters provide useful summaries of the characteristic features of the models in the various areas, and all the models are described in a standardized format which greatly facilitates general understanding and comparison... The authors do provide complete contact information (address, phone, fax, e-mail) for each model developer, which, in fact, may be one of the most valuable aspects of the book... The text should be a valuable reference for ecological modelers." -Ecological Engineering, 16 (2000) 303-304
