Thanks Scott Fortmann-Roe.

I've created a Mathematica file that replicates the model, at

It allows one to experiment with adjusting the initial number of moose and wolves on the island.

I used steepest descent in Mathematica to optimize the parameters, with my objective data being the ratio of wolves to moose. You can try my (admittedly) kludgy code, at

#### Final Midterm Student version of A More Realistic Model of Isle Royale: Predator Prey Interactions

##### Andrew E Long

This model illustrates predator prey interactions using real-life data of wolf and moose populations on the Isle Royale.

We incorporate logistic growth into the moose dynamics, and we replace the death flow of the moose with a kill rate modeled from the kill rate data found on the Isle Royale website.

I start with these parameters:

Wolf Death Rate = 0.15

Wolf Birth Rate = 0.0187963

Moose Birth Rate = 0.4

Carrying Capacity = 2000

Initial Moose: 563

Initial Wolves: 20

I used RK-4 with step-size 0.1, from 1959 for 60 years.

The moose birth flow is logistic, MBR*M*(1-M/K)

Moose death flow is Kill Rate (in Moose/Year)

Wolf birth flow is WBR*Kill Rate (in Wolves/Year)

Wolf death flow is WDR*W
