What data must ecologists collect before constructing a simulation model of an ecosystem?

Summary Introduction

To review:

The collection of data before constructing a simulation model of an ecosystem.

Introduction:

The conceptual model only portrays the general functions of an ecosystem and ignores the study of the working of an ecosystem. However, simulation modeling helps ecologists to understand an ecosystem’s response to changes in physical factors, energy flow, climate change, and the availability of nutrients.

Explanation

The conceptual model only portrays the general functions of an ecosystem and ignores the study of the working of an ecosystem. Simulation modeling deals with understanding the response of an ecosystem on physicals changes, climatic changes, or the change in the energy flow.

Simulation modeling is not an easy task; ecologists have gathered important data in order to create a simulation model of an ecosystem. The model consists of various equations that collectively predict the changes in one feature that will affect others...
