Conceptual Model of the Galveston Bay Ecosystem
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of the project was development of a set of habitat-based, problem-oriented, nested, hierarchical, box-and-arrow conceptual models tiered to three levels of complexity. (1) Simple, nontechnical models that facilitate understanding of important issues by the public focus on the landscape approach and provide an overview of the ecosystem. (2) Complex detailed models that reflect scientific consensus describe the structure, function and connectivity of the habitat components of the ecosystem and its connections to adjacent habitats. (3) Simple technical models useful to decision-makers, resource managers and bay users describe the interconnectedness of the ecosystem
