The authors present a generic software architecture for ecosystem modeling on computing grids. They define and develop standards for software implementation of spatially explicit (landscape-based) ecosystem models, with a strategic goal of building an extensible software platform that increases interoperability and productivity in ecosystem modeling. The Across Trophic Level System Simulation (ATLSS) is presented as a prototypical ecosystem framework, supporting a diverse range of ecological models on a heterogeneous grid using single software architecture.
