Effects of the feeding functional response on phytoplankton diversity and ecosystem functioning in ecosystem models
The thesis presents simulations of phytoplankton diversity in the global ocean performed with a coupled ocean-ecosystem model. It demonstrates the effect of different zooplankton feeding formulations on phytoplankton diversity and its consequences for ecosystem productivity. In addition, a more sophisticated feeding formulation is presented.
