Modelling ecological data.

  Ecological surveys generate large quantities of data; database technology has not yet reached its full
potential in this area. Here we investigate approaches to modelling ecological data, considering the require-
ments for a successful model. An object oriented conceptual model is presented, and applied to the results
of an actual survey. A data management system based on this object oriented approach is briefly described.
