Calculates the energy rate \(g_i(w)\) (grams/year) available by species and size for growth after metabolism, movement and reproduction have been accounted for.

getEGrowth(
  params,
  n = initialN(params),
  n_pp = initialNResource(params),
  n_other = initialNOther(params),
  t = 0,
  ...
)

Arguments

params

A MizerParams object

n

A matrix of species abundances (species x size).

n_pp

A vector of the resource abundance by size

n_other

A list of abundances for other dynamical components of the ecosystem

t

The time for which to do the calculation (Not used by standard mizer rate functions but useful for extensions with time-dependent parameters.)

...

Unused

Value

A two dimensional array (prey species x prey size)

Your own growth rate function

By default getEGrowth() calls mizerEGrowth(). However you can replace this with your own alternative growth rate function. If your function is called "myEGrowth" then you register it in a MizerParams object params with

params <- setRateFunction(params, "EGrowth", "myEGrowth")

Your function will then be called instead of mizerEGrowth(), with the same arguments.
