Development of a general individual-based modelling framework

The development of the new individual-based model has been one of the major scientific advances made during the project. The new model has the following advantages over the initial models.
(i) It is much more flexible than the original models and so can be applied to a wider range of environmental issues.
(ii) Using a single model for both geese and waders highlighted the similarities between these systems, rather than differences.
(iii) The new model has been developed in a more general way than the previous models and so it not simply restricted to waders and geese, increasing the potential application of the model in the future.
