Article history: Received 15 February 2005 Received in revised form 29 July 2005 Accepted 9 August 2005 The field of ecoinformatics is concerned with gaining a greater understanding of complex ecological systems. Many ecoinformatic tools, including artificial neural networks (ANNs), can shed important insights into the complexities of ecological data through pattern recognition and prediction; however, we argue that ecological knowledge has been used in a very limited fashion to shape the… CONTINUE READING
