Niche Modeling, Complex Systems, R-theory, Global Ecosystem Science


Adaptive Ecological Niche Modeling provides the missing link in current science for coupling potential and dynamical models as called for in global socio-ecological programs. Development of the Generalized Niche Model (GEN) completes the architecture of Relational Ecology based on the principles of R-theory.
