Ecological modelling of agroforestry systems

Ecological modelling of agroforestry systems

Agroforestry Abstracts 6(4): 207-247

This review begins by considering three uses of models: to describe a system (descriptive models); to generate management recommendations (prescriptive models); and to predict system behaviour and the consequences of management actions (predictive models). Three types of predictive model are considered in more detail: those based on diagrams; those based on qualitative understanding; and those based on mathematical relationships.
