This book focuses on modelling in ecological ecomics and offers a comprehensive overview of current and emerging methods of applying mathematical, computational and conceptual methods to environmental issues. Following a detailed introduction, the authors investigate various modelling techniques including: * evolutionary modelling * input-output modelling * neo-Austrian modelling * entropy in ecological ecomics * thermodynamic models * multi-criteria evaluation * agent-based modelling * the environmental Kuznets curve. In each of the specially commissioned chapters, the expert authors have tried to limit the level of complexity to create a unique and accessible resource. As such, this book should have a wide appeal amongst scholars, researchers and students with an interest in modelling techniques and their use in ecological and environmental ecomics.
