I think the ?lsoda page is still large enough, but there are some 
preliminary examples on my homepage:


e.g. "chemostat.R" or "blasius*.R". Furthermore, I am playing around 
with a small package with a collection of ecological models and I would 
be interested if there are some other people who are interested using R 
as a simulation platform in ecological modelling.
