Welcome to the website for Understanding Complex Ecosystem Dynamics: A Systems and Engineering Perspective.
Complex system dynamics modeling is an important part of my work and an important part of this book. I have developed the software that implements my complex ecosystem dynamics model using the MATLAB programming environment and language (specifically MATLAB release R2009a, The MathWorks, Inc., February 12, 2009). I want readers to have access to the model and the complete MATLAB programming code. Readers are invited to explore, run, and experiment with the model software. One can, for example, change model parameters and even change the code – and then generate the associated results. The model provides a tool for enhancing understanding of complex system network dynamics. Readers can test further the ideas in the book – as well as develop and test their own ideas.
