The first consideration in predictive ecological modelling is the selection of appropriate input variables. Numerous variables can, however, be involved whereas most of them cannot be omitted from the analysis without a significant loss of information. Therefore, rigorous methods are needed to distinguish which variables are essential from those which are not. In this paper, the use of greedy stepwise (GS) and genetic algorithms (GA) is explored to automatically select the relevant input…

Floating Azolla Cover Influences Evapotranspiration from Flooded Water Surfaces

Floating vegetation is a common sight in flooded environments and plays a key role in regulating the global water balance, particularly through evapotranspiration (ET). Azolla is a dominant floating
