Towards developing a general framework for modelling vertical migration in zooplankton

Andrew Yu. Morozov, Oleg. A. Kuzenkov
2016 Journal of Theoretical Biology  
Using this general paradigm, we explore the optimal strategy for the migration across different depths by zooplankton grazers throughout the day.  ...  To illustrate our ideas we consider four generic DVM models, each making different assumptions on the population dynamics of zooplankton, and demonstrate that in each model we need to maximize a particular  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Professor A. Gorban (University of Leicester, UK) for a helpful discussion. We also thank Dr. E.  ...
