Energy budgets of Deep-water corals

In one of our new projects, Daan Gerla and Dick van Oevelen are making a Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) of the cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa. Of course we use R to implement this model, to fit the DEB model to the data, and to run scenarios under various environmental pressures. On the modelling page you will find a simple DEB model as it runs in R.
