Abstract: This report describes the Ecological Dynamics Simulation Model – Light model (EDYS-L) in terms of its function and how to use the model software. EDYS-L is designed to mechanistically simulate complex ecological dynamics across spatial scales ranging from square meters to landscape and watershed levels. Modules include climatic simulators, hydrology, soil profile, nutrient and contaminant cycles, plant community dynamics, herbivory, animal dynamics, management activities, and natural/anthropogenic disturbances. Designation of scenarios and management alternatives for each simulation run is conducted within a Microsoft Windows user interface. Outputs include graphical displays in this interface, as well as extensive tabular files for all ecosystem components.
