Food-web modelling: two trophic layers

Model : feeding1
Simile version : 3.1+
Date added : 2003-06-20
Keywords : Food web ; Fixed-membership submodel ; Association submodel ;


This model simulates the feeding relationships between two trophic layers: plants and herbivores. Each trophic layer is represented in terms of a number of species, and we model the feeding between (potentially) each species at one level and each species on the other level. An association submodel is used to specify which species of herbivore actually feeds on which species of plant.
