This book has the purpose of providing the qstate of the artsq concerning bio-economic modelling dealing with agricultural systems. In most cases, the contributions use a methodology combining the use of biophysical and economic models, in all cases, an engineering production function approach is totally or partially applied. This practice is being developed in the last years as a response to concrete policy matters: agricultural policies are increasingly combined with environmental and natural resources policies, and this reality involves the need of an integrated assessment, that current economic models are not able to provide.SSSA Book Series N.5, Madison, pp 721a738 Rykiel EJ Jr (1996) Testing ecological models: the meaning of validation. ...
