Description: Laboratory capabilities in ecology are essential for continued scientific progress. Now an important part of the new field of ecological engineering, living systems modeling provides understanding of the dynamics of wild ecosystems. When all the tools available are employed, as described in this book, one can achieve very high densities of reproductively sustained species and populations. In time these models will inevitably increase our understanding of biodiversity in the earth's biosphere. Many aspects of living systems modeling are currently used in the applied world of environmental conservation and management.

Over the past several decades, scientists and hobbyists have been developing the techniques for living systems modeling, building model ecosystems and demonstrating their potential. Dr. Adey and his Smithsonian Marine Systems Laboratory, supported by Karen Loveland of Smithsonian Productions, have been among the primary developers of new techniques in this field of ecological engineering. This book is a starting point for future significant work in this broad scientific, educational, and environmental field.
