AQUATOX: Modelling Environmental Risk and Damage Assessment, a new volume in the Developments in Environmental Modelling series, provides a single source for all AQUATOX applications, including basic equations, applications and examples on model implementation in various aquatic habitats (riverine, lacustrine and estuarine). The book presents a comprehensive reference source for AQUATOX model applications that can be used for an ecological modeling course at the graduate level. Throughout the text, chapter headings are organized to help users understand model building processes,
Toxic chemicals can exert effects on all levels of the biological hierarchy, from cells to organs to organisms to populations to entire ecosystems. However, most risk assessment models express their results in terms of effects on individual organisms, without corresponding information on how populations, groups of species, or whole ecosystems may respond to chemical stressors. Ecological Modeling in Risk Assessment: Chemical Effects on Populations, Ecosystems, and Landscapes takes a new approach by compiling and evaluating models that can be used
Clear Lake is the largest fresh water body in California. It has three arms: Upper Arm, Oaks Arm, and Lower Arm. Though each of them can be treated as an individual lake, the three arms still have similar phytoplankton bloom situations. Clear Lake keeps contributing to Lake County and surrounding region's economy as well as environmental and ecological locality. However, since the 1930's, cyanobacteria have been blooming at certain years. Since then, the government and the public have paid high
Advanced Modelling Techniques Studying Global Changes in Environmental Sciences discusses the need for immediate and effective action, guided by a scientific understanding of ecosystem function, to alleviate current pressures on the environment. Research, especially in Ecological Modeling, is crucial to support the sustainable development paradigm, in which the economy, society, and the environment are integrated and positively reinforce each other. Content from this book is drawn from the 2013 conference of the International Society for Ecological Modeling (ISEM), an important and
Understanding and being able to predict fluvial processes is one of the biggest challenges for hydraulics and environmental engineers, hydrologists and other scientists interested in preserving and restoring the diverse functions of rivers. The interactions among flow, turbulence, vegetation, macroinvertebrates and other organisms, as well as the transport and retention of particulate matter, have important consequences on the ecological health of rivers. Managing rivers in an ecologically friendly way is a major component of sustainable engineering design, maintenance and restoration
