Life table

Model
The life table model is one of the type of survival analysis which pertains to "time to event". The information that were accumulated throughout the study is one of the advatage of this method.This often used in demographics and epidemiology but can also be used on agricultural economics. Sperling and Loevinsohn (1992) used this method in analyzing varietal diffusion for beans in which the main objective is to know howm nay technology adopters remains after a time period.

Measuring Riparian Width

Model
This model is a modification of an older model by Camporeale and Ridolfi (2006) that studied the influence of river flow variability on the distribution of biomass of riparian vegetation. The new and modified model defines an upper or hillside bound of riparian vegetation, in addition to the lower bound defined in the older model, and thus clearly delineate riparian width. The assumptions made in the model include:(1) Only one species is considered, thus ignoring interspecific dynamics. (2...

Human and nature dynamics (HANDY): Modeling inequality and use of resources in the collapse or sustainability of societies

Model
HANDY is a 4-variable thought-experiment model for interaction of humans and nature. The focus is on predicting long-term behavior rather than short-term forecasting. Carrying Capacity is developed as a practical measure for forecasting collapses. A sustainable steady state is shown to be possible in different types of societies but over-exploitation of either Labor or Nature results in a societal collapse.

Coupled population dynamics in an open, three-trophic-level system

Model
This model explicitly incorporates the immigration and emigration processes in the context of three-trophic-level systems (e.g., a stream reach), and reveals how the coupled populations will change in response to the primary-productivity gradients (e.g., r, K).  In contrast, traditional simple food-chain models study mostly two-trophic-level system which can be open or close.  More interstingly, though not reflected here, there are two contrasting models presented in the paper:...
