Simple Matlab scripts to explore Resource Competition and mechanisms for maintaining diversity in plankton populations.
Scripts to simulate and explore the relationships between resource supply, populations, and competition of simple, microbes (described by Monod kinetics) in the context of a chemostat (continuous culture). The matlab scripts should provide some simple examples to help get started in modeling and programming, as well as some basic explorations of ecological concepts. Slides outlining the tools and questions are here.

Script 2: Two organisms, one resource here
Script 3: Two organisms, two resources here
