"Biologists ... have been relatively slow to take advantage of enhanced computing power and unlock the potential of these techniques. This book removes any excuse. Based on a course run by the authors, who both come from an ecological background, and building on an earlier, more conceptual book, this aims to provide the necessary tools to students and researchers."--Frontiers of Biogeography "This volume would be an excellent text for an introductory course in modeling as science, or for self-study by a mature researcher interested in learning about this important new way of doing science."--H. Van Dyke Parunak, JASSS "This book represents something I have been waiting for some years now: a good and solid introduction to the field of individual- and agent-based models (hereafter IBM/ABM's). This book fulfills my needs, using a mix of theory and practical examples which seems to suit the topic well... [T]he book is not only a practical guide but also serves as a good introduction to the basics of 'healthy' programming. These authors are the right ones to do this as they have a strong background in the philosophical aspects as well as the practical issues of modeling."--Basic and Applied Ecology "Railsback and Grimm have done the heavy lifting required to establish a solid IBM course by providing a carefully crafted inquiry-based curriculum. This accomplishment removes a major impediment to the proliferation of IBM courses. Although the book seems aimed at a graduate-level course, I also do not see why an ambitious teacher with motivated students could not use this textbook as the basis of an upper-level undergraduate course in individual based modeling. Agent-based and individual-based modeling has the potential to foster an appreciation of the value and place of individual-based models in our field in the next generation of emerging ecologists (who already have computational leanings)."--Christopher X. Jon Jensen, Ecology

NetLogo Book of Railsback and Grimm 3. März 2012
Von Aristotelis Gkiolmas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Excellent book! A thorough introduction to NetLogo programming, most helpful for beginners in the field.
I work in Education and this book helps a lot with also TEACHING NetLogo. I strongly recommend it to everyone, Biologist or not, who is working with the specific programmming environment.

Netlogo for ecologists 18. Februar 2012
Von Miklos N Szilagyi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Finally, an introduction to agent-based modeling using Netlogo. Vow! I have been waiting for such a book for years. Looking at the titles of the chapters it looks like the perfect book to learn agent-based modeling and Netlogo at the same time. Indeed, if you are an ecologist, this is THE book for you. Unfortunately, if you are interested in anything else, The Netlogo User Manual is still your best choice. This book gives too much detail about modeling ecological problems without paying enough attention to fundamental information about agent-based modeling or Netlogo. Out of 103 references 76 are about biology, most of them about special problems of ecology. The classical books about agent-based modeling are not even mentioned (Growing Artificial Societies by Epstein and Axtell is the only exception).
Drs. Railsback and Grimm are established scientists and modelers. I strongly encourage them to publish a revised second edition of this book that would really deserve to be called a practical introduction to agent-based modeling and Netlogo.

Excellent resource for teaching secondary school students 1. Juni 2012
Von J. Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have been using this text as a resource for a middle school (7th and 8th grades) computational science class focusing on agent-based modeling. The first projects (mushroom hunters and butterfly hill-climbing) have provided rich experiences for my students. This is my first chance to teach this sort of modeling using NetLogo--after many years of teaching with StarLogo--and it has been a real pleasure to see a text oriented towards experimentation with ABMs in a language with such a gentle learning curve become available. I intend to use the text itself in a more advanced course for high schoolers in the fall.

Excellent for those with a programming background 6. August 2012
Von R. Kreisler - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really appreciated that the book focuses on the high level concepts and planning, rather than details such as syntax which you can get from other resources. There are many notes to people with programming experience to relate their knowledge to NetLogo and help prevent frustration. I wish other books about software realized how important understanding the goals and concepts are as opposed to details which you can slot into place once you have a better understanding of the big picture.

A thoughtful and thorough introduction to agent-based modeling 4. Januar 2013
Von Paul M Blanton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Very good introduction to both agent based modeling and the NetLogo software. A good text for a modeling course. Good accompanying on-line resources. My only complaint is that the book is a little uneven, chapter to chapter, in the level of detail and instruction. Those using this book to teach themselves may get frustrated, as the authors 'take the training wheels off' very quickly. Some basic things seem under-explained, while others are over-explained. I do like that the book isn't a step by step 'push this button' cookbook (like most computer books), but arguably there's a bit too much philosophy of modeling material at times. People with no or little programming experience may get unnecessarily bogged down stymied by simple problems that a teacher or classmate could quickly answer. The strength of the examples and exercises is that they very quickly get the reader to think critically about modeling and its assumptions; the weakness of the more philosophical approach is it will turn off people who are more interested in quickly learning the software. This is NOT a NetLogo instruction manual. While those with some programming experience and/or a fair bit of patience and tenacity can use this book to teach themselves how to program ABMs, the best use of this book is probably as a textbook in a modeling course.
