I will begin with an explanation of the goal and the problems.  The underlying approaches will be discussed, and the discussion will highlight the need for more detailed inclusion of econmoics and other issues.  This will also highlight some of the issues with data analysis, etc.

Next, basic issues of yield will be considered, then multispecies.
