    Description

    Aims of the research: The gypsy moth life system model (GMLSM) is a complex model which incorporates numerous components (both biotic and abiotic) and ecological processes. It is a detailed simulation model which has much biological reality. However, it has not yet been tested with life system data. For such complex models, evaluation and testing cannot be adequately accomplished comparing the outputs with life systems data. Our strategy is to combine structural and functional analysis of the ecological processes within the GMLSM with development of synoptic models that incorporate the fundamental ecological processes, gradually increasing their complexity and reality.
