As regions throughout the world face increasing ecological problems, the importance of developing scientific methods for sustainable development and of producing effective tools for the measurement and control of processes continues to grow. The tasks facing ecologists now require the collaboration of scientists, engineers, economists and other professionals such as those participating in the Second International Conference on Ecosystems and Sustainable Development (ECOSUD II) which took place in 1999. Featuring edited versions of the papers presented at ECOSUD II, this book covers the following topics: Application of Ecological Models in Environmental Management; Biodiversity; Climate Modelling and Ecosystems; Integrated Modelling; Environmental Risk; Sustainable Development Aspects; Lakustrine and Wetlands Ecosystems; Forestation Issues; Computational Modelling of Natural and Human Ecosystems; Natural Resource Management.

The tasks facing ecologists now require collaboration with a wide range of specialists including scientists, engineers, and economists. Placing emphasis on areas that will most benefit from the application of scientific methods, this volume contains edited versions of papers presented at the Third International Conference on Ecosystems and Sustainable Development. Over 75 contributions highlighting recent work on different aspects of the engineering, modelling and theory of ecosystems are included. These are divided under the following headings: sustainable development issues; environmental and ecological policies; ecological modelling in environmental management; erosion and soil management; biodiversity; natural resource management; environmental risk; water resources issues; wetland and lakustrine issues; forestation issues; sustainable agro systems; energy generation and conservation; ecotoxicology models; and mathematical and system modelling.
