A graduate textbook that provides a unified treatment of machine learning methods and their applications in the environmental sciences.(2005) modelled the stageadischarge relation by the MLP NN model and by the M5 tree (Quinlan, 1993) model, which uses ... SVR to outperform MLP, similar to the conclusion reached by Khan and Coulibaly (2006) in long-term prediction of lake water level in Lake Erie. ... A central problem in ecology is how species richness (i.e. the number of species in an area) is affected by enviromental variables.
