Dynamic energy budget (DEB) model used to simulate the growth and reproduction of sardine (Sardinops sagax) in the Southern Benguela.

As Chapter 3 & 4 part of thesis presented in fulfilment of the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the department of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Cape Town, South Africa.

This folder includes all MATLAB scripts and parameter data used:
Chapter 3 experiments:

Main model script:
* Sardine.m
Visual Parameter estimation script:
* par_variant.m
Parameter scripts:
* Sparameter_calc.m
* Parameters_Sardine.m
* mydata_Sardinops_sagax.m
Startvalue script:
* Startvalue_Sardine.m

Functional response script (f):
* f_variant.m
Temperature script (T):
* Temp_variant
Starvation experiments
* Starts with: Starving

Chapter 4 experiments:
All start with Sardine_ followed by life stage larvae_ , recruit_ or adult_ and then experiment type:
Temperature alone = Temp
Feeding = food
Combined = fTemp_ followed by the which pair of conditions were used
