Sample scenario model

Figure 13 shows how a scenario model can be deduced from the above set of assumptions by exploiting the model space. The nodes corresponding to the aforementioned assumptions and those that logically follow from the assumption set are indicated in the Figure.

When combining the participants and relations in the resulting scenario model, the model given in Figure 14 can be drawn. This model corresponds to the one that an ecologist would draw if the logistic growth and Holling predation models were regarded to be appropriate for the task at hand.
