EPA’s EcoService Models Library Fact Sheet

EPA’s EcoService Models Library (ESML) is an online database for finding, examining, and comparing ecological models that can be useful for estimating the production of ecosystem goods and services. EPA created the ESML to catalog and characterize ecological models and make that information more readily available.
