Ecosystem Model for Environmental Applications

Authors: Marius Pislaru, Romeo Ciobanu, Cristina Schreiner


This paper aims to build a system based on fuzzy models that can be implemented in the assessment of ecological systems, to determine appropriate methods of action for reducing adverse effects on environmental and implicit the population. The model proposed provides new perspective for environmental assessment, and it can be used as a practical instrument for decision –making.

Keywords: Fuzzy Logic, ecosystem model, environmental security, sustainability of habitable regions
