    based on Artificial Life. This calls for the development of an Artificial Life based Software Ecosystem model. This paper proposes a framework using Artificial Life in the Software Ecosystem. In order to find the gaps in the existing methodologies, extensive literature review has been carried out. It was found that the interest in the topic has been on the increase and the advent of professional Ecosystems has helped popularizing the phenomenon. However, the present framework do not use the data related

  • Examples Of Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Model

    Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Model Tommy G. Maher, Jr. Bakersfield College CHDV B42 Fall 2017 October 29th, 2017 Abstract Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems model describes four (4) systems that work intricately within each other, similar to a circle of rings, which influence human development. With the individual positioned at the center of the model encompassed by these four (4) rings, each ring acts as a different context by dictating the way in which the individual behaves, develops

  • Ecosystem Response Paper

    Ecosystem services are defined as the direct and indirect benefits to human well being that are derived from ecosystems and ecosystem function (Gomez-Baggethun and Barton 2013, TEEB 2011), or in other words, “the conditions and processes through which natural ecosystems, and the species that make them up, sustain and fulfill human life” (Daily, 1997, p. 3). The ecosystem service framework may be used to assess present day function, monitor change over time, and inform future planning, conservation

  • Social Regression Analysis Paper

    1238 Words  | 5 Pages

    Introduction: The ecosystems around us in nature provide us with many services that humans benefit from, such as water filtration and clean air. However, these benefits are not something many people think about how we benefit from these services since they typically aren’t something we are used to paying for. Still, people benefit from the services offered by ecosystems everyday. Within cities, urban parks can be found throughout the USA. Some are home to forests, wetlands, grasslands, while others

  • Ecosystem Sustainability and Climate Change

    800 Words  | 4 Pages

    An Introduction to Ecosystem Sustainability and Climate Change: Anthropogenic activities have been pouring greenhouse gases into the atmosphere which is evident from the increasing trends of changes in global temperature, precipitation, climate induced hazards/disasters, pest distribution, etc. It is alternating the habitable areas of species, their distribution, rate of survival and reproduction, food web interactions, ecosystem services, and their conservation. Ecological managers need to invent

    Maya Guhan Bio 1B Lab Section 121 Annotated Bibliography for the Alpine Fellfield Ecosystem Primary Papers Graham EA, Rundel PW, Kaiser W, Lam Y, Stealey M, Yuen EM. 2012. Fine-scale patterns of soil and plant surface temperatures in an alpine fellfield habitat, White Mountains, California. Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine Research 44:288-295. This research looks to understand how microscale differences in soil and plant canopy surface temperatures, rather than macroscale differences

  • The Effects Of Endangered Species

    1299 Words  | 6 Pages

    endangered species, the effects will determine the fate of planet earth. Efforts to save endangered species have not done nearly enough. Without some of the most important creatures and plants, humans can lose millions of dollars in economic values, lose ecosystem services that are vital to the planet, and affect the biodiversity of earth. (Make a divided thesis statement) Endangered species have become a rising issue within the last century due to the extensive rate of mass extinction of animals and plants

  • Preliminary Proposal : Coastal Alaska- Coa Lter

    5371 Words  | 22 Pages

    Preliminary Proposal: LTER: Coastal Alaska- CoA LTER Overview The CoA LTER aims to better understand how high-latitude marine ecosystems will be affected by future ocean change, particularly changes associated with glacial discharge and ocean acidification. Kachemak Bay, Alaska, is the ideal high-latitude model system to conduct this research because of its 1) wealth of existing data, 2) existing infrastructure (the Kasitsna Bay Laboratory), 3) high productivity and biological diversity, 4) susceptibility

  • A Community Of Organisms With Their Environment

    1327 Words  | 6 Pages

    An ecosystem is a system formed by the interaction of a community of organisms with their environment. Ecology is a branch of biology having to deal with the relations and interactions between organisms, their environment, and other organisms. A community in an ecosystem is an assemblage of interacting populations occupying a given area. A habitat is an area or environment where an organism or an ecological community lives. There is a large diversity in an ecosystem, for example, the species, environment

  • Galls Natural Environment

    591 Words  | 3 Pages

    Galls are important because they reflect the condition of plant health and abundance in a specific ecosystem. Gall-inducing species are excellent models for ecological studies due to their abundance, diversity, and sessile habit, which make them easier to census than free-feeding herbivores. This can allow species diversity comparisons among different habitats (Fernandes, 1988). Gall inducers and galls are part of multi-trophic level ladders that include plants, insects, birds, and other animals
