Bartell -- Role of computational toolkits in environmental management / Jeffrey P. Holland [and others] -- Science and management investments needed to enhance the use of ecological modeling in decision making / Lev Ginzburg and H. Resit Ak├░cakaya -- Educational investments in environmental science and management / Thomas P. Maxwell [and others] -- What in the world is worth fighting for? Using models for environmental security / Wendell Chris King and Virginia H. Dale -- New directions in ecological modeling for resource management / Virginia H. Dale. "The chapters in this book detail several successful uses of ecological models in resource management. There are five pairs of chapters addressing important issues in ecological modeling, including barriers to the use of modeling in decision making, evolving approaches in the field, effective use of data, the toolkit approach to modeling, and the various scientific and technological investments required for productive modeling. Ecologists and other scientists will learn how best to focus their research for practical real-world applications, and resource managers and other practitioners will learn the most appropriate methods of understanding dynamic processes and making projections about the implications of their decisions."--Jacket.
