The computers are used as “gaming devices”, a safe environment in which the complexity of resource issues can be explored, and ideas tried, with no consequences other than learning (Holling and Chambers 1973). The search for simplification is manifest in both the theory and practice of adaptive management. As mentioned above, computer models are built to help integrate and organize collective understanding of complex issues. The approach in constructing these models is to be parsimonious in the selection of variables and interactions.
