The application domains of biological and ecological systems provide many opportunities and challenges for the technologies of modelling and control. These domains feature prominently amongst the activities of the IFAC community. This paper, written by authors who have had close connections with IFAC activities in these domains, provides insights as to achievements that have been made and challenges which need to be addressed during this first decade of the 21st century. Applications focus on agricultural systems, the biomedical domain and on environmental systems.
