DEB-IBM: A generic and accessible individual-based implementation of the Dynamic Energy Budget theory

Below you can find the DEB-IBM implementation in Netlogo, the user manual, and the model description using the ODD protocol. However, I am moving the DEB-IBM site to my personal research page. Here you can find  up-to-date model versions, applications, and support.

DEB-IBM model (v2)

Since the publication of DEB-IBM the parameter set for Daphnia magna has been updated in add_my_pet. This new version includes the updated parameter set. Note the figures in the User Manual correspond with the older Daphnia parameter set found in v1.
