We use systems dynamic models to explore plankton trophic interactions. This section provides links to 3 open access ebooks on modelling.
These books provide step-by-step guidance on constructing and deploying models of different plankton functional types.
For those who wish to conduct in silico experiments only, the complete food-web frameworks are available.
- Dynamic Ecology – an introduction to the art of simulating trophic dynamics using Powersim (Flynn 2018)
- Dynamic Ecology in GNU Octave – same as above but using GNU Octave (Akoglu & Flynn 2021)
- A simple N-based Mixoplankton Model (Flynn & Mitra 2021)
