Wandering Elephants

An agent based model of interaction of animals and vegetation. A number of elephants live in the area 100 by 100 kilometers. There are two layers of geographical information: altitude and vegetation (you can switch between them). Elephants randomly wander in the area, but every once in a while they get thirsty and go to the nearest lake to drink water. As elephants walk, they demolish vegetation with a certain rate. Vegetation regenerates, but it can never exceed a natural maximum that depends on the altitude. Various landscapes can be generated.

The model was created with AnyLogic - simulation software / Ecosystem Dynamics
