Approaches to Bioeconomic Modelling in Correlation with Consumer Model and Biodiversity Indicators

Iudith Ipate


In this study we analysed  the characteristics of bio-economic models in agricultural systems and agro-biodiversity indicators. The classical bioeconomic models are used to analyze the human consumption of ecosystems for production.  The analysis focuses on changes in a limited set of agro-biodiversity indicators that matter to human beings. In existing bioeconomic models incorporate ecological complexities and dynamics is limited. Although bioeconomic model  provides useful methods to integrate economic values into environmental analyses, improved  the dynamic interrelationships between natural processes and socio-economic systems is needed to allow an integrated assessment of multiple values. The overview will enable a more informed decision about whether and how bio-economic models/modeling can contribute to the development of integrated environmental decision support tools.  The bio economic modeling it is important for evaluating the costs and benefits associated with environmental resource use.
