The NED-2 forest ecosystem management DSS the integration of a wildlife model for the Southeast, the goal analysis agent and the report generation agent /
Abstract (Summary)NED-2 is a decision support system for forest ecosystem management developed by the USDA Forest Service and the Artificial Intelligence Center at the University of Georgia. NED-2 provides a tool for resource management by running goal-driven process analyses using future condition rules. The six resource management categories supported are Ecology, Health, Timber, Visual, Water, and Wildlife. This thesis addresses the design and implementation of a Wildlife Model for NED-2 that extends the former wildlife model to the entire eastern part of the United States. The goal analysis and report generation components are documented in terms of functionality and with regard to the integration of the Southeastern Wildlife Model.
