    Description

    Modeling ecosystems is an evolving science that is both practical and theoretical. The integration of modeling, landscape ecology, management, and rapidly changing technology offers an array of possible solutions to modern environmental quandaries. In order to address these concerns, a workshop was developed to discuss the role and management implications of modeling owl populations and their habitats. The purpose of the workshop was to reflect on the previous symposium's biological, environmental, and management research; as well as how modeling has affected our understanding of owl management. The workshop focused on the roles that Geographical Information Systems, Habitat Suitability Index models, Meta-population models and Population Matrix models have played in owl management. The group developed a set of strategies for using these modeling techniques to promote ecosystem management.
