Abstract

The use of ecological indicators in models has been a highly relevant topic in science and practice for several decades. Ecological indicators is a broad and diverse topic: for ecosystem and landscape organisation depiction, ecosystem health assessments, theoretical foundations of ecosystem dynamics, ecosystem service analyses, applications in environmental management, or human-environmental system analysis. The use of models is not less manifold, including not only computer-based simulation models but also conceptual models, data models, landscape models, hierarchy models, gradient models, theoretical and network models as well as economic and societal models.

This Special Issue of Ecological Modelling is dedicated to our highly appreciated colleague Prof. Felix Mueller from Kiel, Germany, celebrating his 60th birthday in November 2014. We brought together a diverse and very international group of colleagues which accompanied Felix during the last decades and produced this collection of high quality scientific articles in a Special Issue. The topics of the 21 articles in the Special Issue are related to Felix' life and work, full of ecosystem indication, ecosystem theory, systems analysis, ecological modelling, ecosystem services, holistic indicator sets, and gradients on various spatial, temporal and interpersonal scales.
