Our paper deals with the information system Info-X. This software system aims at the management of ecological studies and provides a special functionality for simulation studies. In particular, Info-X can be seen as an approach to conserve the wealth of knowledge and experience, which manifests in models, simulation programs, and their practical applications. This knowledge/experience can broadly support research in theoretical and practical ecology. Info-X provides a state-of-the-art graphical user-interface to browse its database, select desired content, start simulation runs with suitable simulators, and check published results for plausibility/correctness. Furthermore, users can assess and rate the quality of existing content and are invited to submit new content.
