Summary
Abstract: (Summary adapted from the Server for Ecological Modelling web site)

This WWW-server provides easy access to available information about
ecological modelling. It is also designed for modellers who want to make their
models easily available. It has the purpose of acting as a register and
documentation system of ecological models: REM and ECOBAS, simulation-software
and links, data sources and ... View entire text

Description: The Register of Ecological Models (REM) is a meta-database for
existing mathematical models in ecology.

Description: Proper documentation of a simulation model is certainly a time
consuming task. However, scientists are neither
rewarded for writing a documentation nor punished for not doing
so. Standardized and accessible model
documentation promises not only an improvement over the present
situation but also confers additional advantages
of scientific interest like detecting of generic pattern in
mathematical formulations. To facilitate an efficient usage of
mathematical models, the documentation standard ECOBAS_MIF was
designed. Not only equations and
parameterized variables have to be considered, but also
ecological background information (e.g. range of validity,
implicit assumptions, ecological context) is essential. +In this
paper, we introduce newer developments and features
of ECOBAS. An ECOBAS modelling assistant tool was designed to
provide an easy to use interface. As a
demonstration of ECOBAS, the system was used to reimplement the
Rostherne model.
