Producer

SC-IPM Entities (Predator-Prey)

Overview

In this model, the predators (ie, grazers) are Zooplankton and the prey (ie, producers) are Phytoplankton. This Generic Process uses a single algebraic equation.

Phytoplankton are photosynthesizing microscopic organisms that inhabit the upper sunlit layer of almost all oceans and bodies of fresh water. They are agents for "primary production," the creation of organic compounds from carbon dioxide dissolved in the water, a process that sustains the aquatic food web.
