An attempt is made to rank 41 steady-state models of aquatic ecosystems on the basis of their maturity. Maturity is quantified using several of Odum's attributes of ecosystem maturity. It is shown that it is possible to make such a ranking, and that the ranking seems to confirm our intuitive perception of ecosystem maturity. The ranking is compared to rankings based on various ecosystem goal functions.
