Cover for Data analysis in vegetation ecology.

This book contains 14 chapters discussing vegetation ecology, which is conceived of as a discipline analysing multiple vectors of species or plant traits jointly with environmental variables in space and time. Chapter 2 discusses patterns in vegetation ecology. Mathematical analysis starts with...

Cover for Statistical issues in nutritional modelling.

Most models in biology have a deterministic structure: they make definite predictions for quantities without any associated probability distribution. A stochastic model, on the other hand, contains random elements and probability distributions within the model itself. Historically, the predominant...

Cover for Dynamics of calcium and phosphorus metabolism in laying hens.

This chapter discusses the regulation of calcium and phosphorus metabolism in hens. A dynamic model of Ca and P metabolism is also presented that could help in evaluating the effects of changes in the feeding management of laying hens.

Cover for Sustainability and tourism dynamics.

The concept of sustainable tourism remains subject to substantial confusion, both with regard to precise implications and the specific patterns of resource use the concept implies. This confusion is particularly evident with regard to specific tradeoffs, policies, actions or indicators that are...

Cover for Modelling methane emissions from farm livestock.

This chapter reviews how models have been developed to predict methane production from individuals, groups of animals and, more broadly, from farming systems. It discusses the techniques used for model development and summarizes the progress made to date. Some aspects of methanogenesis is also...

Cover for Simple dynamic growth models.

This chapter extends the previous chapter by presenting several models some of which are obtained by modification of the simplest growth functions, but are often not analytically soluble. First, ways in which simple exponential growth can be limited are considered. Then the representation of delays ...

Cover for Dynamic deterministic models.

Dynamic deterministic models are the principal type of model used in this book, and, arguably, are the most important in the wider biological context. The general method of dynamic deterministic modelling is explained, emphasizing the role of state variables, differential equations, other...

Cover for Mechanistic modelling at the metabolic level: a model of metabolism in the sow as an example.

This chapter presents a model of metabolism in the sow. A brief description of dynamic, mechanistic, metabolic models is given. The integration of genetic elements into metabolic models is discussed. The modelling process (experimentation, hypothesis setting and improvement) is outlined.
