Assessing model structure uncertainty through an analysis of system feedback and Bayesian networks.

- Computer ScienceEcological applications : a publication of the Ecological Society of America

The approach incorporates the effects of feedback on the model's response to a sustained change in one or more of its parameters, provides an efficient means to explore the effect of alternative model structures, mitigates the cognitive bias in expert opinion, and is amenable to stakeholder input.

Application of Bayesian Belief Networks for the prediction of macroinvertebrate taxa in rivers

- Environmental Science
- 2004

Assessment of the success of prediction of macroinvertebrate taxa in rivers by means of a selected number of environmental variables indicates that thoughtful input variable selection as well as sensitivity analysis will improve the models for practical use in river restoration management.

Continuous Bayesian network for studying the causal links between phosphorus loading and plankton patterns in Lake Simcoe, Ontario, Canada.

This study suggests that a 15% phosphorus loading decrease will still result in >25% violations of the 4 Î¼g chla/L value in the two embayments of Lake Simcoe, but the TP levels will decrease in response to the exogenous loading reductions and this improvement will be primarily manifested in the northcentral segments of the system.

It is found that the suggestion that toxic Pfiesteria cause fishkills is inconsistent with observation, and the data are more indicative of a model in which PLOs are stimulated to become actively toxic by the presence of already dead or dying fish.
