Foundations for a dynamic model to analyze stability in commercial grazing systems


, : Foundations for a dynamic model to analyze stability in commercial grazing systems. Advances in Geoecology (37): 173-182

This paper presents the foundations of the DESPAS model, a systems dynamic model of a theoretical commercial grazing system. Our goal is to emphasize the importance of systemic models, such as DESPAS, as tools for reaching a better understanding of the possible behaviours expected to be found in commercial grazing systems, for synthesizing existing knowledge about such systems and for guiding future research. An overall description of the model is also included.
