Use of agent based modelling to simulate complex ecological systems in contexts with poor information: The case of the Winton Wetlands in Victoria, Australia

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paperpeer-review

Abstract

There have been numerous frameworks and approaches developed for the study of complex ecological systems. For the most part, these approaches require extensive amounts of information. The aim of this paper is use Agent-Based Models to simulate complex ecological systems and examine overarching trends, using the Winton Wetlands in Victoria, Australia as a case study. The study showed that even though there are gaps of information about the functioning of this particular site, this type of framework could increase the understanding of complex ecological systems and assist in decisionmaking processes.
