Spatially explicit models in landscape and species management

PhD thesis

By Jane Uhd Jepsen


This thesis deals with four main subjects related to the use of spatially explicit models in landscape and species management.

These subjects are

    i) Landscape modelling and the representation of space,
    ii) Predicting species distribution and abundance,
    iii) The trade-off of complexity and the choice between simple and complex models, and
    iv) The importance of individual behaviour and the use of complex behavioural models in evaluating impact of long-tern landscape planning on wildlife.
Each subject, and most of the questions raised dealing with it, are of general concern when using simulation models as tools in management and conservation anywhere in the world. The general discussion is illustrated by a set of case studies focused on North- Western European agricultural landscapes.
