Overview

Modeling Dynamic Biological Systems / Edition 1

Models help us understand the dynamics of real-world processes by using the computer to mimic the actual forces that are known or assumed to result in a system's behavior. This book does not require a substantial background in mathematics or computer science. Using STELLA II and MADONNA software, Modeling Dynamic Biological Systems applies methods of computer modeling to a wide range of topics from laboratory biology and ecology. STELLA II and MADONNA run-time software and computer files of sample models accompany the book on a CD-ROM. The software is compatible with both Macintosh- and Windows-based systems.
