  • giovanni-2015-ecopath-fig-2 Evaluation of a spatial ecosystem model: predictions and data May 22, 2015

    Spatial Ecosystem models can be useful but need to be validated with data. Our study validates for the first time the spatial version of the commonly used Ecopath with Ecosim ecosystem modelling suite. We find that spatial distribution of fish species is well predicted by the model, but fishing effort distribution is not.
