The stability of trophic mass-balance models of marine ecosystems: a comparative analysis

Abstract

Dynamic simulations of 18 ECOPATH mass-balance marine trophic models are used to explore the stability of systems when briefly impacted by a fishery on the key 'wasp-waist' populations occurring at intermediate trophic levels. The results are related to different ecosystem goal functions previously identified as representative of three attributes of… (More)
