Food web models for aquatic ecosystems

Principal Investigators:

James F. Kitchell

I have three goals for my time as a Center Fellow on sabbatical at NCEAS during 2003-2004. First, I will develop a synthesis and summary of the accomplishments derived from a working group "Models for Alternative Management Policies for Marine Ecosystems" which has been supported through NCEAS during 2001-2003. Second, I will prepare a monograph based on analyses of the bioenergetics models developed for a total of 47 fish species over the past several years. Third, I will develop a subset of those models and use them to provide guidance to management... more
