This page describes use of SC-IPM's Simplify Model tab.
See App Startup
and Main Window for introductory notes.
Models are "simplified" by removing a process that was previously present.
So, a simplified model is identical to its parent,
save that it has one fewer process.
For example, MODEL-98 might have lotka-volterra as a predation process.
Simplifying it to remove this process yields a child (MODEL-98-1).
Simplifying the child to remove yet another process (grazing)
yields a grandchild (MODEL-98-1-1).
The child models' names will end in a generated sequence number (e.g., -1, ... -9, -10, ...).
However, although the models are named and presented as a tree,
they actually form a lattice.
After following the notes on the Test Models tab,
make sure that the Simplify Model tab is selected:
