Generally speaking, Mori's theory for moduli spaces consists of the following program: Given a moduli space M, study its effective cone, ample cone and basi loci of divisors; For a divisor D on M, study the map induced by D and the resulting model; Finally, give a geometric interpretation of the new model and compare it with M. To better illustrate the idea, we will run this program explicitly for some moduli spaces. The main example will be the Kontsevich moduli space of stable maps.
