An overview of the available ecological models is best provided by presenting different applied classifications of ecological models. Five classifications will be presented, namely:
1. what is modeled: matter, energy, or population;
2. classification of all the models in nine different pairs of models (this classification involves as much as 29 = 512
3. type of model employed (11 types given);
4. type of system modeled; and
5. type of problem modeled.
