Many types of ecological or environmental problems would benefit from models based on people's knowledge. To create ecological models with both expert and local people's knowledge, a multi-step fuzzy cognitive mapping approach is proposed. A cognitive map can be made of almost any system or problem. Cognitive maps are qualitative models of a system,(More)
Ecological systems are governed by complex interactions which are mainly nonlinear. In order to capture the inherent complexity and nonlinearity of ecological, and in general biological systems, statistical models recently gained popularity. However, although these models, particularly connectionist approaches such as multilayered backpropagation networks,(More)
