Product Description

Review

The authors establish an effective and coherent framework for using individual-based modelling.--Nikita Y. Ratanov "Mathematical Reviews "

An excellent book, which aims to invigorate individual-based modeling . . . by providing a clear theoretical framework for the subject--which they term individual-based ecology (IBE)--and a step-by-step guide to creating individual-based models (IBMs) within this framework. . . . I think this is a very timely book, and I recommend it to anyone new or old to the subject.--Richard Stillman "Quarterly Review of Biology "

The book very successfully link[s] various 'universes' ranging from fundamental concepts in ecology and complex systems research to hands-on technical and recipe-like suggestions on how to build a model, illustrated with numerous, well-chosen examples.--Janine Bolliger "Landscape Ecology "

Given the solid conceptual foundation of the book and the wide range of IBM applications in fish ecology, I think that many fish biologists will find this book very useful and I recommend it warmly.--Geir Huse "Fish and Fisheries "

For anyone who wants to know more about and possibly incorporate IBMs in his own research, this book provides plenty of advice and guidance on how to formulate, analyze, and use such models. If IBMs do ultimately reach the potential envisioned by the authors, their seminal book will have done much to contribute to that success.--Jim M. Cushing "Zentralblatt MATH "

This book establishes an effective and coherent conceptual and technical framework for individual-based modeling with the objective to develop and illustrate an approach for addressing how individual behaviors and system dynamics emerge from lower-level traits.--Janine Bolliger "Landscape Ecology "

From the Back Cover

"This seminal book truly deserves to be called the founding text for the growing field of individual-based modeling and the broader program of individual-based ecology. Core procedures and standards for formulating, parameterizing, testing, and communicating such models have long been lacking. Even the basic definitions have been missing. In one stroke, Grimm and Railsback provide all of those things. Thus, individual-based modeling now has a foundation no less firm than the foundation of classical mathematical ecology."--Don DeAngelis, Biological Resources Division, U.S. Geological Survey, and University of Miami; author of "Dynamics of Nutrient Cycling and Food Webs"

HASH(0x9585fbd0) out of 5 stars Metamodeling 13 April 2015
By Hendrik Bright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Individual Based Modeling (as implemented in ecology) or Agent Based Modeling (as used in economics) is presented as the new way to perform science in the 21st century. However, since many years, it has not proved this expectation. Grimm explains why: many scientists "play" a little bit with their computer and when they find something that resembles reality, they present it as a new theory. Unfortunately, this is not how science should be performed. Grimm gives a lot of interesting tips to do it better. Following his advice can make good theories. Of course, you also need a good insight in the "psychology" of animals (or people). Speculation has been used too many times, either in classical analytical models and individual based models. This book is a must for everybody who wants rigorous methods to perform science in biology (and social sciences)!

HASH(0x9585fe1c) out of 5 stars A "Must Have" !!! 8 Jan. 2008
By Gordon Glaze - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After having read this book from cover to cover - I currently consider it a "Must Have" on the bookshelf of anyone who is serious about ecological modelling or complex systems. The book is comprehensive, clear, honest, deep and enlightening.

HASH(0x95860078) out of 5 stars Thorough 10 Sept. 2007
By B. J. Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I haven't finished the book, but so far it's been very thorough on the subject and has given me lots of ideas for how to proceed on the project I'm working on. Would definitely recommend it.

By Anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was able to get the book that I wanted for a decent price and it came in a timely fashion, which was good because I needed it right away. The book was in new condition just like they had said.
