School: MELROSE HIGH
Area of Science: Ecology
Our project this year is a continuance of the previous project last year. Our model will be constructed on the ecology template on StarLogo. This year we will be able to compute in the numbers in StarLogo. Our project is over the ecology of a ranch. In our computer generation we will have multiple variables that we can use to calculate possible scenarios. We will have grass computed in, along with cattle, coyotes, hunters, and probably rabbits. We are sure that farmers and ranchers will be able to use this information for being able to calculate the amount of cattle to raise on a pasture range. The reason we chose this project is because of the dominance of agriculture in all of our lives. 4 of us live on a ranch, while everyone one of us work for farmers. We know the amount of impact this model could have for the surrounding areas.
