Complexity of Ecosystems (Part 2: Netlogo)

Master 2 Economics of Global Risks
Murat Yildizoglu

This course module applies the concepts and tools learned above to a specific problem: Developing a small model of fishing in space, integrating the management of natural resources and economic behaviors of fishers.

The students will progressively create an agent-based model in NetLogo that implements, and complements the framework proposed in

Moustakas, A., W. Silvert, A. Dimitromanolakis, 2006, A spatially explicit learning model of migratory fish and fishers for evaluating closed areas, Ecological Modelling, 192, 245-258.
