Clone of Clone of Isle Royale: Predator Prey Interactions

Elena Baglaeva
This model illustrates predator prey interactions using real-life data of wolf and moose populations.

Experiment with adjusting the initial number of moose and wolves on the island.
This model describes the interactions between wolves, mice, herb on the island.
Wolves eat moose, moose eat herb. Herb has its regeneration coefficient. Wolves and moose have their death and birth coefficient

The goal is to perform an experiment and find out if the current system is stable.

Clone of MAT 375 Midterm file: Model of Isle Royale: Predator Prey Interactions

Clay Frink
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.

Thanks to Jacob Englert for the model if-then-else structure.

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
