I'm a user and designer of ecosystem models, with particular interests in soil / vegetation biogeochemistry, and dynamic niche occupancy models. As such I have a long-standing interest in model integration, since most ecosystem models integrate knowledge. I have worked using procedural, scripting and graphical-coding languages. These days I tend to design in Excel and implement in Fortran and/or R. All my models are implemented using the IBM "CSMP" design pattern, to facilitate dynamic integration.
