Society Information

The RMA is an international association of scientists working at the intersection of mathematical modeling, environmental science, and natural resource management. We formulate and analyze models to understand and inform the management of renewable and exhaustible resources. We particularly concerned with the sustainable utilization of renewable resources and their vulnerability to anthropogenic and other disturbances.

We hold an annual conference and we publish the quarterly journal,l Natural Resource Modeling in association with Wiley-Blackwell. This is an international scientific journal published 1986 that is covered in Thomson’s Science Citation Index.

Natural Resource Modeling was established on the premise that there is a conceptual and methodological core that is common to model building throughout disciplines that include such fields as forestry, fisheries, economics and ecology. This core draws upon the analytical and methodological apparatus of mathematics, statistics, and computer modeling.

Natural Resource Modeling is intended to serve as an antidote to disciplinary fragmentation, to provide a common forum for the exchange of ideas, and to promote an orderly scientific approach to the broad issues of conservation and resource management.

Natural Resource Modeling publishes primary research papers, expository survey articles and special issues on ecological, environmental, and natural resource themes. It is published quarterly.

Natural Resource Modeling is the research journal for the Resource Modeling Association. The RMA was founded in the early 1980s by a group of applied mathematicians, applied population biologists, fisheries scientists, and resource economists who hold annual meetings and sponsor special sessions at conferences.
