This book focuses on modelling in ecological economics 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 economics
• 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 economics.
