CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Integration of tree source and sink activities.

Tree crop modeling could be instrumental in facilitating integration of numerous aspects of the development, growth and physiology of fruit tree crops and provide a valuable tool for testing concepts for understanding how fruit trees work, if it could be achieved. This chapter presents a synopsis...

Cover for Species abundance, accumulation and diversity data.

Ecologists in particular are often interested in the species richness and diversity of groups of organisms, ranging from studies of small ecosystems to global patterns. In most cases it is not possible to count every individual or to detect every species, and so they use a variety of estimation...

Cover for Population modelling including spatially explicit models.

R is an open-source statistical environment modelled after the previously widely used commercial programs S and S-Plus, but in addition to powerful statistical analysis tools, it also provides powerful graphics outputs. R can be used for some quite fast modelling jobs but its speed is nowhere near...

Cover for Spatial price equilibrium trade modelling: theory.

The theory of measuring economic welfare across horizontal and vertical chains is provided in this chapter. As demonstrated, it underlies the spatial price equilibrium (SPE) trade models. The vertical and horizontal chains involved in a particular trade model, referred to as the REPA model, are...

Cover for Modeling bilateral forest products trade.

The focus in this chapter is on the development of mathematical programming models used to model bilateral forest products trade. Theoretical outlines are provided of a multi-region, single product trade model and of an integrated, multi-region, multi-product trade model. The objective function and ...

Cover for Global forest products trade model.

This chapter introduces the Global Forest Products Model (GFPM). The general model structure and the mathematical formulation of the GFPM are provided and key differences and similarities to the modeling approaches developed in the previous chapters are highlighted. The usefulness of the GFPM as a...

Cover for Challenges of modelling and projecting tick distributions.

To produce temporal projections of tick distributions, two inputs are needed: present and projected. This may seem to be an unnecessary truism, but the stipulation introduces a number of challenges. This expert opinion looks at the practicalities of modelling both distributions and sets out what...

Cover for Considerations for predicting climate change implications on future spatial distribution ranges of ticks.

This chapter focuses on spatial distribution models (SDMs) that are essential to producing reliable models of tick distributions, both in the present time and in the future, under climate change scenarios. It highlights the opinion that careful consideration of the methods is necessary in building...
