Many current ecological problems involve human disturbances of both food webs and the nutrients that cycle through them. Little progress can be made towards elucidating the complex feedback relations inherent in the study of nutrient cycles in ecological systems without the tools of mathematics and computer modelling.

By considering nutrient cycling, this new model improves our understanding of the response of food webs to nutrient availability and open perspectives to better link studies on food web dynamics and ecosystem functioning.

Dynamics of Nutrient Cycling and Food Webs. [D L DeAngelis] -- In all fields of science today, data are collected and theories are developed and published faster than scientists can keep up with, let alone thoroughly digest. Food chains and webs result in nutrient cycles that can be examined at vari- ous scales, ranging from individuals to the entire planet. Depending on the scale, nutrient cycles are open or closed. Ecosystem ecologists using the process-functional approach have usually neglected population interactions in food webs, despite the fact that a mechanistic understanding of ecosystem processes such as decomposition of organic matter and nutrient cycling requires studies of the organisms performing these processes (Moore et al., ; Verhoef.   Nutrient cycling is one of the most important processes that occur in an ecosystem. The nutrient cycle describes the use, movement, and recycling of nutrients in the environment. Valuable elements such as carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, phosphorus, and nitrogen are essential to life and must be recycled in order for organisms to exist.
