Which ecosystem model works best for what you need?
Webinar presentation by Vidette McGregor, Samik Datta and Adele Dutilloy; March 2020 (40 min + Q&A)
The reseachers discuss three ecosystem models of varying complexity: an Atlantia model, a food-web model and a size-based model for Tasman and Golden Bays.
They compared the model dynamics to each other and to current knowledge, and discussed appropriate use of each model.
These models allow researchers and decision-makers to test different scenarios to understand effects on the whole ecosystem – but which model works best for a specific situation and criteria?
