Aquatic Ecosystem Modelling

This paper examines the different types of models that may be applicable in aquatic ecosystem modelling, including statistical, empirical, and process-based models. The key steps to setting up a model application are covered as well as the limitations and pitfalls of each type of model. Applications of the models are demonstrated for different lake ecosystems, with students having an opportunity to apply the models to questions of relevance to aquatic ecosystem managers.
